Family Assistance Center (FAC)

FAC Logo

The mission of the Family Assistance Center (FAC) is to provide information, referral, and outreach for service members and families. FACs are activated as a multi-disciplinary humanitarian response to major events. The events can include natural / man-made disasters, or preparation for a deployment. Depending upon the location, FACs are staffed with contractor personnel who may be augmented with military, temporary technicians or volunteers. A FAC offers to persons affected by an event, a single place to receive reliable information, crisis or grief support, and benefits information. The National Guard is the lead agency tasked to establish FACs during all levels of contingency, mobilization and emergency to assist and support service members and families of all service branches.
