Soldier and Family Support
Joint Family Support Assistance Program
The Joint Family Support Assistance Program (JFSAP) is possible through a collaborative effort of the Department of Defense (DoD), the National Guard Bureau (NGB) and the Alabama National Guard. The program is designed to meet the needs of Families of all military (Active Duty, Guard and Reserve) members. JFSAP is designed to be a community based program and targets military Families across the state that are considered geographically dispersed from the support normally provided by an active duty installation. A hallmark of our program is prevention through outreach and education. The JFSAP team for Alabama includes the following team members:
The goal of the JFSAP team is to augment existing family support resources to facilitate and enhance the connection of families to each other. They also provide a smooth, consistent and supportive delivery of military and community resources. The JFSAP team provides education and counseling to help military Families deal with life's everyday challenges including parenting, marriage, all phases of the deployment cycle and other issues related to family separation and becoming suddenly military. We also strive to improve community awareness of military Families and foster positive experiences through our education and outreach.
The JFSAP team stands ready to assist you. Please contact any member of the JFSAP team with any questions, comments or referrals.
