-Provide support and educate the Families of Tennessee Army & Air National Guard members. This includes instilling self reliance particularly while their service members are deployed. The education process begins with educating Family Readiness Groups about the varied resources available to them before, during and after the deployment.
-Yellow Ribbon Program- This program has made a tremendous difference in how we prepare service members and their families for deployments, but most importantly, for reintegration. The Yellow Ribbon Program provides education, training and support to family members during all cycles of deployment. Increased emphasis is placed on the mental well being of our youth, family and service members.
Strong Bonds program- The program intent is to increase family bonds as well as single service member resiliency. All events in TN are well received and attended.
Joint Family Support Assistance Program (JFSAP)- The program has allowed us to bring a number of support resources to the table. These programs include the Military Family Life Consultants (MFLC), Red Cross, and Operation Military Kid (OMK). These programs are vital to the well being of service members. .
