Information and support for service members and their families. About the Call Center.
Family-to-Family Health Information Centers are nonprofit organizations familiar with the issues facing families with special needs. In addition to the services for military families that are available here at Military OneSource or at your local family support center, Family-to-Family Health Information Centers can connect you to resources that can provide and finance health care for your children, help locate assistance, and explain legislation. Each center has staff — many are parents of children with special needs — who understand available services and programs.
