Airman and Family Readiness Center

The professionals at the Airman & Family Readiness Center are ready to assist single and married active duty military members, retirees and Travis DoD civilians and their families with a wide range of services and information. 

Mission:  Support mission readiness by helping individuals and families adapt to the changes and demands of military life, and by assisting commanders to respond effectively to family needs. 

Community Readiness Consultant for Unit Leadership:  Community Readiness Consultants are Airman & Family Readiness Center staff members that have been designated as liaisons between the AFRC and their designated group.  CRCs partner with leadership (Commanders, First Sergeants, Supervisors, etc.) to assess strengths, resources, and needs that arise within a unit.  CRCs work together with unit leadership to address personnel issues such as personal, interpersonal, and family concerns. Customized services (as identified by using a collaborative, multi-agency approach) are provided to assist leadership in addressing the organizations health, welfare and readiness of its members. 

Leadership and Management Consulting:  

Morale and Work Unit Teambuilding: When organizations experience personal or interpersonal issues between employees, supervisors, and leadership, the AFRC can help. CRCs help units and work teams improve morale and increase their level of camaraderie. The AFRC conducts team building exercises to help individuals and working groups understand how to communicate more effectively and work together more efficiently by understanding personality differences. 

Develop and Enrich Spouse Groups: Spouse groups are an integral part of military life. The AFRC is ready to assist commanders in establishing new groups, strengthening existing groups, training spouse group leaders and providing on-going support. 

Family Matters Consultant for Unit Commanders: CRCs assist unit leadership in assessing individual or family concerns and in making appropriate referrals in areas such as finance, communication, parenting, etc. 

Facilitation of Personal Empowerment: AFRC consultants facilitate individuals' understanding of their contribution, significance, and responsibility in the work place. The AFRC helps individuals learn that they can make a difference. 

Customized Assistance and Training: Whatever the unit request may be, the AFRC either by itself or in collaboration with other agencies will provide needed services to units.
