SUPPORT SERVICES

Army Community Service

Army Community Service offers many programs and services that are designed to equip service members, DOD civilians and families with the skills, knowledge and support they need to face the challenges of military life. Whether you change duty stations, deploy, manage the family during deployment or face a new situation, ACS has a program to help you and your family adjust.

ACS programs and services include Army Family Team Building; career guidance; the Exceptional Family Member Program; financial readiness and assistance; relocation readiness; violence prevention and education; and more. For more information on ACS programs at Picatinny Arsenal, visit https://picatinny.armymwr.com/programs/acs.

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 Groups

Family Readiness Groups are organized to provide mutual support for a unit’s family members. Groups serve as a family support system during deployment, but they operate during periods of normal operations as well. The Army FRG website is a secure site only available to soldiers, Army civilians and their family members. The website provides family members with a valuable tool to access documents, view photos and videos, participate in forums and gain important information about the Army unit that their service member belongs to 24/7 from anywhere in the world. For more information, visit www.armyfrg.org.
