The Joint Family Support Assistance Program supports service members and families from all service branches and components. The program's service providers collaborate with existing family support resources to augment activities and fill gaps. Services are delivered in local communities through partnerships with federal and non-federal entities.
Each state has a tailored Joint Family Support Assistance Program designed to support the state's unique needs. Service providers who may be available based upon the needs of the state include military and family life counselors, child and youth behavioral military and family life counselors, Military OneSource consultants and personal financial counselors.
