FLEET AND FAMILY SUPPORT CENTER (FFSC)
3175 Vandenberg Ave.
Fort Worth, TX 76127
8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday
FFSC Programs and Services
The FFSC should be one of the first stops upon arrival. It is a key resource on the installation and a gateway to accessing all of the resources available to service members and their families.
The FFSC has three major components:
- Counseling and Family Advocacy,
- Sexual Assault Prevention and Response, and
- Work and Family Life programs.
The overall installation family support system, is a network of agencies, programs, services, partnerships and individuals that support personal and family life readiness, as well as mobilization and deployment readiness.
Counseling and Family Advocacy
A major pillar of FFSC’s mandate is providing counseling, consultation and assessments to help with stress, anxiety, deployment and relationship conflicts. The Family Advocacy Program offers awareness and prevention programs, risk assessments, victim advocacy and intervention for incidents of domestic abuse and child abuse/neglect.
Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR)
The second major pillar of the FFSC is the SAPR program. The SAPR program conducts education and awareness, trains uniformed victim advocates, and offers 24/7 support and assistance. The Safe Help Line is (877) 995-5247.
Work and Family Life (WFL) Program
The final significant pillar of the FFSC is the WFL program. This program offers an array of education and awareness classes for military members and their families to assist in a variety of areas. Some include:
Transition Assistance Program
Leaving the Navy may involve a total lifestyle change. The FFSC hosts the U.S. Department of Labor-sponsored Transition Assistance Program (TAP) Employment Workshop for separating military members planning to leave the service or retire. Known as Transition — Goals, Plans and Success (T-GPS), these information-packed workshops are designed to provide service members with the skills and knowledge necessary to plan and execute a successful transition. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) presentation on VA benefits is also included.
Personal Financial Management
A program to assist service members in developing a personal and/or family financial management plan. The FFSC’s trained personal financial fitness staff can help service members analyze their finances. Military and family members can learn more about setting priorities, creating budgets, debt liquidation, Thrift Savings Plan, consumer and credit issues, and predatory lending. The FFSC will help service members set a course for financial independence and guide them through their journey of becoming a Wealthy Warrior. The FFSC staff is a centralized training source for command financial specialists.
The training, information, and personalized career coaching will help service members identify and reach employment and career development goals, manage the challenges associated with a mobile lifestyle and develop job search skills. Employment assistance professionals can assist with a wide variety of family employment issues.
Life Skills Classes
FFSC offers proactive workshops to enhance and assist with balancing personal and professional lives. This program provides service members with information and education about a variety of life cycle issues, including parenting and relationships to help strengthen personal relationships.
Information and Referral
An integral function of the family center, information and referral services can assist in locating needed services and programs available on the installation, through civilian agencies in the local community, and via national resources.
The morale, health, welfare and efficiency of command personnel are the responsibility of the Commanding Officer. The Command Ombudsman acts as a liaison between the command and its families. The FFSC’s highly-trained Ombudsmen Coordinator helps Ombudsmen with understanding their duties. The Ombudsman Coordinator provides information to assist Ombudsmen in helping spouses and families meet the unique challenges of a military lifestyle.
The Fleet and Family Support Center may also provide other services such as New Parent Support, Exceptional Family Member information, Individual Deployment Support services, Relocation Program information and assistance and some limited services for military retirees.
Newly assigned personnel should read their facility Emergency Action Plan (EAP) for information on how to respond to the various hazards the installation may experience.
Notifications of a hazard that is occurring or about to occur are published through AtHoc, and may be announced over Giant Voice (outdoor warning system).
Personnel should self-service register their personal devices in AtHoc so that they may receive text messages and e-mail notifications of hazards that may or are affecting the installation. To self-service register devices, click the up arrow on the system task tray, right click on the purple globe with a satellite orbiting — then select “Access Self Service”
The greatest hazard for NAS Fort Worth JRB is destructive weather in the form of severe thunderstorm products (lightning, high winds, flooding, large diameter hail, and tornados). The Dallas Fort Worth metroplex uses a siren system (outdoor warning system) to warn of a tornado. When the siren sounds, go indoors and tune to local broadcast media — if severe weather is the threat, go to the innermost room or hallway on the lowest floor, stay away from windows.
During snow and ice storms, delayed reporting or installation closures will be posted on the installation’s social media sites and local broadcast media web sites:
