Family Readiness Programs


Marine Corps Family Team Building

Marine Corps Family Team Building was established in December of 1998 as a result of the merger of AC/S Human Services, AC/S Morale, Welfare and Recreation and Base Education. Several separate family-related entities with similar functions were combined under the direction of a Marine Officer to unify their efforts. Our programs vary from pre-deployment briefs and Family Readiness training to religious retreats. Though diverse, our focus is to build a strong bond between the service member their family and the Marine Corps.

The FOCUS Project…

…provides resiliency training for military families facing the challenges of a family member’s deployment during wartime.

Multiple deployments affect both the service member and the family as routines and roles are disrupted. Children may experience stress related to a parent’s role in the Global War on Terror and the impact of Combat Operational Stress on family life.
