Domestic Abuse, Child Abuse

The Defense Department is committed to providing support for service members and their families to enhance readiness and resiliency. There is zero tolerance when it comes to child abuse and neglect and domestic abuse. Each of the service branches has established a Family Advocacy Program that provides and coordinates a range of services for victims, parents, partners and service members. FAP addresses child abuse and neglect and domestic or intimate partner abuse through advocacy and clinical supportive services, and prevention efforts through early identification and education. It also coordinates with other key military and civilian agencies to ensure the availability of safety and support.
