Family Assistance Specialists (FAS)

The mission statement of the Family Assistance Team is to provide support and resources to Service Members and their Families regardless of their location, deployment status, branch of service or duty status (active, reserve, retired). We are here to provide the Six Essential Services in addition to a multitude of other topics and other necessary resources. 
Everyone needs a little assistance every once in a while. Don’t let a small issue become a large one when it could have been prevented! Reach out to the Army and Air Family Assistance Programs to see how they can help you today!

Family and Individual Resilience

How do you cope? Resilience is the ability to cope with stressors and changes that life can present, in a healthy and productive way. Our team has certified Master Resilience Trainers on staff to help guide you through your day-to-day stressors. You do not need to be in crisis to call! There is no issue to big or too small that we cannot assist you in navigating.

Upon request, individual and group training is available. The Family Resilience curriculum will help you to identify challenges and how to deal with them in a healthy and productive way. This course would be a great course to offer through your Family Readiness Group! For your Family Resilience needs, please contact Suzanne Buemi at 720-250-1186.
