Exceptional Family Member Program
The Exceptional Family Member Program is a mandatory enrollment program that works with other military and civilian agencies to provide comprehensive and coordinated community support, housing, educational, medical and personnel services to families with special needs. Soldiers on active duty enroll in the program when they have a family member with a physical, emotional, developmental or intellectual disorder requiring specialized services so their needs can be considered in the military personnel assignment process.

Family Readiness Group
Family Readiness Groups are official command-sponsored organizations for a unit’s soldiers and family members. FRGs provide an avenue of mutual support and assistance, and a network of communications among family members, the chain of command and community resources to foster a sense of belonging to the unit and community. FRGs also provide information and referral and support during deployments.
