What is a Family Readiness Support Assistant (FRSA)?

   

The mission of the Family Readiness Support Assistant (FRSA) is to maintain the continuity and stability of Family Readiness Groups (FRGs) as units undergo changes in volunteers and leadership. Operationally, the FRSA provides administrative and logistical support to commanders and volunteer FRG leaders. FRSA take the administrative burden off the volunteers, which allow FRG leaders to reach out to Soldiers and their Families in the command. This preserves stability on the home front, especially during periods of deployment.
