Military & Family Readiness Center

The Military & Family Readiness Center (M&FRC) serves as a one-stop information and referral center for Total Force members. One of our major functions is a linkage, ensuring military personnel and their families are connected with the appropriate services while PCS’d or Deployed. Information and referral is at the heart of everything we do at the M&FRC. We will answer your questions and provide the service you need or we will connect you with other resources if we do not have the answer. When you aren’t sure who to ask, ask the M&FRC.
