The Unit, Personal, and Family Readiness Program (UPFRP) is a unit centric program, guided by the Family Readiness Command Team that reinforces the relationship between the unit and the services relevant to the unit, the unit members, and their families. The primary goal of UPFRP is to empower Marines and family members, providing them the opportunities to not just survive but to thrive while taking on the challenges of the military lifestyle.

Readiness & Deployment Support educates and prepares military members and their families to cope with the challenges of all types of deployments and family separations including the Command team members and Deployment Readiness Coordinator who will guide families and Marines through deployments.

The most valuable resource to the Marine Corps is the individual Marine and their family. Personal and family readiness is a combat multiplier, equally important as individual and family readiness. Achieving a high state of individual and family readiness supports the Marines and their families in successfully balancing the challenges of the military lifestyle, family, career, and mission events.

The primary duty of the Family Readiness Program is to serve as a communication portal between the commander, the unit, the Marine, and the Marine's family members.
