Airman & Family Readiness Program & Resiliency CenterL

Supporting Airmen & Families

The Airman & Family Readiness Program is here to support you with resources, referrals, transition assistance, youth and child programs, personal financial readiness, relocation, health and wellness, community building and much more! 

We are now co-located with the Chaplain Corps, Director of Psychological Health, Sexual Assault Awareness & Prevention Program Manager, and Yellow Ribbon Support Specialist in the 142nd Wing Resiliency Center in Building 355.

Along with a rotation of resource providers, our team provides airmen and families with a one-stop-shopping experience for support. Whether in a steady-state period, or while experiencing separation, our team is here for you and your loved ones.  

Family Support

 

Family Readiness is Airman Readiness

Readiness is vital to mission support, and family readiness is key to an airman's ability to be fully present down range. Moving between the civilian and military world presents many challenges, and our team is here to assist in connecting airmen and families with the resources available to build resiliency and weather the demands of living in both worlds.

With no active duty base in Oregon, our airmen and families are often physically disconnected from the Wing and therefore the Guard Community. Families especially may feel mainstreamed and invisible being geographically separated from the military community of which their airman is a part. It is our team's mission to bring information and programs to our families to help our airmen and their loved ones to stay connected, informed, and to be prepared, and resilient for times when duty calls.
