Family Readiness Services provides ways for Marines, Sailors, and their Families to build valuable problem-solving skills and find helping resources. Problem-solving skills are an essential aspect of workshops led by Marine Corps Family Team Building.
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.
