MilParent Power is Help for Parents

The entire military community has a role to play in fostering healthy children. Military OneSource’s MilParent Power campaign connects military families, community leaders and service members to the wide range of Department of Defense programs and resources designed to support healthy parenting – both during National Child Abuse Prevention Month and all year-round.

The Family Advocacy Program

The FAP runs the New Parent Support Program and helps victims of child abuse and neglect. Find parenting resources or report concerns about a child’s welfare at your installation’s FAP office.
