Family Preparation Academy

FAM_BlackDadBaby_3001The Family Preparation Academy is a one-day program designed to empower and resource Servicemembers, their spouses, parents, significant others and children to address the effects of combat operational stress and general issues prior to deploying. Utilizing subject matter experts, previously deployed Servicemembers and representatives from military, government and civilian agencies, participants will have an opportunity to connect with service providers and dialogue about the challenges of deployment and understand what resources are available to them by various agencies in the state. Some of the issues addressed will be:

  • Coping successfully during wartime deployments
  • Growing a marriage while separated by deployment
  • Raising children as a single parent
  • How parents of Servicemembers can cope during deployment and be involved 
  • What children need from their Servicemember and parent during deployment
  • Handling finances during the deployment

Your Servicemember’s unit will provide information to you on the Family Preparation Academy dates and details.
