Welcome to the Illinois National Guard Family Program
The National Guard Family Program is a Joint Force initiative that serves as the foundation for support to families of Army and Air National Guard members. As the Guard faces unprecedented increase in military activity and extended deployments, it is more vital than ever to ensure that families are prepared for the stresses of deployment and supported throughout the entire deployment cycle. The Family Program acts as a network that allows families to mutually support one another. By providing families with information, resources, and support, the program strengthens both the unit and service member.
