Family Assistance Centers (FACs) are designed to assist the families of military service members during peacetime and during training or mobilization. A FAC is open to all branches of the military (Air Guard, Army Guard, Active Duty Army, Air Force, Coast Guard, Marines, Navy and all Reserve Components). A Family Assistance Center provides a "one-stop shopping” & resource to help family members cope with any issue they encounter as a military dependent.
