The following management tools are available for download and printing by Joint Family Support Assistance Program service providers to help conduct and promote their programs. Upgrades for Acrobat Reader software are available at no charge at Adobe.com.
The Key Messages and letters below are not Official DoD materials; they are samples created by several of the 15 pilot JFSAP states. Identifiable state information has been removed. Samples may be used as a resource to develop state specific materials.
When possible, presentations are provided in PDF and Word or Publisher versions. PDF files will download more quickly than Word or Publisher files. However, the following Word/Publisher presentations are provided so that Service Providers may individualize them for their own installation requirements.
The following are some guidelines to consider:
- JFSAP is intended to serve DoD service members and their families. Coast Guard Families are not eligible for JFSAP services.
- Do not include information specific to the various contract agencies that support the JFSAP program, for example do not use headers, logos, or website addresses for Managed Health Network (MHN) or any other contractor.
Once developed, please submit letters, brochures, and flyers to firstname.lastname@example.org so they can be shared with other JFSAP Teams.
