The Military and Family Support Center supports individual and family readiness through a full array of programs and resources which help military families to be resilient, well-informed and adaptable to the Navy-Air Force environment.

MFSC promotes self-reliance and resiliency to strengthen the military and its family members, supports mission readiness, assists commanders in planning for and responding to family readiness needs, and facilitates building a strong community network of services through community outreach and partnerships.

The MFSC provides a broad spectrum of services designed both to assist newcomers as well as support families throughout their tour of duty in the National Capital Region. Relocation assistance, family employment, volunteer opportunities and information and referral services are especially helpful to new arrivals.

Other programs include: deployment readiness, ombudsman/key spouse, personal financial management, transition assistance, Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP), Family Advocacy Program (FAP), New Parent Support Program (NPSP), life skills, family emergency response and the Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program. In addition, MFSC has licensed clinicians who provide free, confidential, short-term counseling for individuals, couples, families and groups to address relationships, crisis intervention, stress management, depression/grief after loss, occupational and family issues and financial difficulties.
