Fleet Readiness Programs

family readiness groups

Our Fleet Readiness Programs help build resiliency by offering free military programs that help build morale and strengthen military families.

Family Readiness Group Meetings

Looking for a place to have your FRG meetings? Look no further, we are here to help! Keep all the military spouses informed of events that will be occurring during ship’s deployment while meeting at a child friendly location. No fees are charged to the command and a limited number of groups are able to receive no cost child minding. To check on current availability, contact our Fleet Readiness Director Jamie Brown.

Ship Deployments and Homecomings

We know how tough it is to say goodbye and how exciting it is when they return home! The ASY can offer support with pre-deployment briefs and can be pier-side with activities to celebrate the military member’s return home.

Holiday Assistance

Our Holiday assistance programs vary each year, but holiday help is generated through a military command based referral system. We give Thanksgiving turkeys and food boxes to military families who would not otherwise be able to afford the celebratory meal. We also help families with small gifts for Christmas. In 2012 we also received funding to send a number of military members and their families home for the holidays. Holiday programs for 2013 will be posted in early September.

Emergency Commissary Assistance

We offer a limited number commissary gift cards to members facing financial crisis as funds are available. This is a referral based program and can only be utilized once per year. Referrals are required from one of the following sources: Fleet and Family Support Centers, Navy Marine Corps Relief Society, a Command Financial Specialist, or a Chaplain.
