Fleet and Family Support Center Programs

The following are some of FFSC’s most popular programs; those not listed are included in other sections of this publication.

Personal Financial Management (PFM) stresses proactive, long-range financial education and training aimed at preventing financial crisis and ensuring financial success. It is imperative that we teach Sailors financial responsibility at every stage of their careers. Establishing a life cycle approach for Sailors and families will form a continuum from recruitment through retirement. This preventative and educational approach to PFM allows Sailors to focus on mission needs and will ultimately increase retention and readiness for our Navy.

The Deployment Support Program is designed to help service members and their families successfully manage the challenges of deployment by assisting them to better anticipate and understand the physical and emotional demands associated with deployment. Prior to deployment, the FFSC and Chaplain Corps provide Sailors and their families information and education to help them anticipate and deal with the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the family during the weeks before the impending deployment. During deployment FFSC offers services to support family needs. FFSC also supports the ombudsman program, which provides a communication link between the families and the command. Individual Augmentees (IAs) and their families can access a wide range of support for every stage of their deployment cycle as well.

Individual and Family Counseling services are offered for situational adjustment problems, which may be excluded from coverage under TRICARE behavioral health plans. The goal is to provide professional assistance early, before more significant problems develop. Individual, marriage, family and child counseling and referrals are available as well.

The Family Advocacy Program addresses the prevention, identification, intervention, follow-up and reporting of child abuse and domestic violence. Licensed professionals provide assessment and intervention services. A variety of prevention/education classes are available to active-duty members and their families.

Family Employment Readiness Program: The Navy recognizes that frequent relocations associated with the military lifestyle create career challenges for military spouses. The Family Employment Readiness Program addresses those challenges in basic workshops, career planning, resume writing, interview techniques, federal employment information, self-assessments, goal setting and vocational tests. Resources available include libraries, computer job search assistance, and available job listings locally and nationwide. The Family Employment Readiness Program also provides employment support and educational referrals for military family members as they relocate due to reassignment.

The Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program (SAPR) provides a comprehensive, standardized and victim-sensitive system to prevent and respond to sexual assault. The key components of SAPR are sexual assault awareness and prevention education, victim advocacy and data collection.

Transition Assistance Management Program (TAMP): Changing careers is a stressful undertaking, perhaps even more so for those leaving military service after many years. TAMP offers a full-service approach to effectively manage career change and discover all employment opportunities.

Relocation Assistance Program: The constant in the life of the military member and their family is change. FFSC offers information on the moving process, entitlements, new duty stations and tips for success. Additionally, welcome aboard packages and other information is available to military members and their families who are new to the area. From access to basic household items to individual support and workshops, the FFSC supports every aspect of the relocation process.

 

Retired Activities Office: The purpose of this program is to support and enrich the lives of retired military personnel and their families. The Retired Activities Office, which is staffed by volunteers, provides the link between retirees, local military communities and other government agencies that provide assistance to retirees and their families.
