Fleet and Family Support Center

The team at the Fleet and Family Support Center (FFSC) NAS Whiting Field recognizes that being in the military presents unique challenges and opportunities for service members and their families. FFSC programs are aimed at making life in the Navy more meaningful and productive.

FFSC provides information and referral, education, and one-on-one assistance, all at no cost. Military members of all branches and their family members as well as retirees are eligible for most FFSC services. Single people and married persons – civilians as well as service members from E-1 through Admiral – are receiving FFSC services right now. You are not alone. The FFSC staff is here to listen and to help.

Programs include: Life Skills Education, Clinical Counseling, Family Advocacy, Personal Financial Management, Transition Assistance, Relocation Assistance, Family Employment Readiness, Disaster Preparedness, Sexual Assault Prevention and Response, New Parent Support, and Exceptional Family Member.

SUPPORT FOR VICTIMS OF ABUSE OR ASSAULT

Abuse and assault are unacceptable and incompatible with high standards of professional and personal discipline. Abusive behavior by DON personnel destroys lives, detracts from military performance, negatively affects the efficient functioning and morale of military units, and diminishes the reputation and prestige of the military service in the civilian community.

FFSC provides support to victims through these programs:

  • Family Advocacy Program (FAP)

  • Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR)
