Today’s Total Army Family lifestyle can be challenging, but with the right training and resources, it is a challenge that can be met with resilience. Our mission is to provide assistance to Active Duty Service Members, DA Civilians, Retirees and their Family Members. We provide resources and referrals, assist commanders with family readiness plans, assisting installation programs to align with the unit deployment cycle, Soldier Readiness Processing, and Soldier Family Readiness Group (SFRG) training/resources.

Deployment Support for Spouses

Hearts Apart

Offers support to Family Members who are living separately from their Service Member due to mission (i.e. deployment, unaccompanied tour, extended TDY, etc.) requirements. The program sponsors events and services to help make life a little less stressful during separations.  Participants will have an opportunity to attend social activities, educational workshops, and to meet, share and network with other families. Contact your ACS Specialist for more information.

Family Members are eligible to participate in Hearts Apart activities 30 days prior to, during and 90 days after effective date of orders.

Interested in volunteering for your SFRG?

Volunteers are the foundation of all SFRGs. Command teams often rely on SFRG volunteers to help execute their Soldier and Family Readiness plan.  There are many different volunteer opportunities within the SFRG. Contact your unit SFRG leader, family readiness liaison or commander for information on how you can be a part of the SFRG volunteer Family.
