Joint Family Support Assistance Program
The Joint Family Support Assistance Program (JFSAP) embodies the Department of Defense’s (DoD) vision to provide mobile, high-quality family services to augment the ability of current family programs to meet the needs of active duty, Guard, and Reserve family members.
The primary focus of the JFSAP is to bring high-quality family services to families who are not close to a military installation and who might otherwise be unable to access support:
· The JFSAP team consists of a Military OneSource Consultant, a Military and Family Life Counselor (MFLC), a Child and Youth Behavioral MFLC (CYB-MFLC), and a Personal Financial Counselor (PFC).
· JFSAP teams provide the following services and resources:
· information and referrals to community services and support
· non-medical counseling and education to individuals,
families, and groups
· child and youth services, including assistance locating
· financial education and counseling
· on demand support for Yellow Ribbon Program (YRP)
and other deployment events
Military OneSource provides information and resources to help balance work and family life. Consultants are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week by phone, online, or via email offering personalized support to any service or family member. Military OneSource is of particular value to service members and families who are geographically separated from installation services or who are unable to seek assistance during traditional working hours.
