Family Readiness Support

The mission of the Family Readiness Support Assistant (FRSA) is to maintain the continuity and stability of Family Readiness Groups (FRGs) as units undergo changes in volunteers and leadership. Operationally, the FRSA provides administrative and logistical support to Commanders, Rear Detachment Commanders, and FRG Leaders. Taking the administrative burden off the volunteers allows FRG Leaders to concentrate on communicating with Soldiers and their Families, thus preserving stability on the home front, especially during periods of deployment.
