Airman & Family Readiness Center

The A&FRC is dedicated to providing individuals, families, leadership, and retirees with services that strengthen the military community and promote self-sufficiency, mission readiness, military retention, and adaptation to the Air Force way of life.

The Casualty Assistance Representative (CAR) provides prompt and accurate casualty reporting, dignified and humane casualty notifications, and ensures efficient, thorough and compassionate follow-on assistance to the next-of-kin for as long as is needed.

EFMP family support assists families with special needs by helping them identify and access programs and services. EFMP family support includes, but is not limited to: information and referral for military and community services, non-clinical case management, the assessment of family needs, the development of an individualized Services Plan (SP), local school and Early Intervention Services (EIS) information, and warm handoffs when a family transfers to a new location.
