The Navy's Fleet and Family Support Program promotes the self-reliance and resiliency of Sailors and their families. We provide these services to the Navy family to meet the unique challenges of the military lifestyle. Family Support Programs include: Family Life Education, Exceptional Family Member and Family Advocacy Prevention.
Family Life Education
The focus of the Family Life Education Program promotes workshops on Relationships, Communication Skills, Anger Management, Stress Management, Parenting, and other topics to enhance personal and family readiness and enhance the member’s productivity and deployability.
The Navy's Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP)
is designed to assist sailors by addressing the special needs of their exceptional family members (EFM) during the assignment process. Special needs include any special medical, dental, mental health, developmental or educational requirement, wheelchair accessibility, adaptive equipment assistive technology devices and services. The Fleet and Family Support Program is the Information and Referral (I&R) conduit for questions regarding EFM resources in the local community.
The Family Advocacy Program (FAP)
provides clinical assessment, treatment and advocacy services for military members and their families involved in incidents of child abuse or domestic abuse. FAP services include assessment of risk, safety planning, and interventions and/or treatment for victims, offenders and others affected by family violence.
