ARFP Assists Soldiers and Families with Real Issues

Fort Family Outreach and Support Specialist (OSS) Connects Soldier to Services in Response to Tragic Family Loss

Fort Family received a call from the Family Programs Director (FPD) from the 377th Theater Sustainment Command (TSC) on behalf of a non-mobilized Soldier from the Deployment Support Command (DSC).  The FPD was seeking resources to assist the Soldier, who had just suffered the loss of his 24-day old son.  The Fort Family OSS connected the Soldier with financial resources to assist with hospital and funeral costs.  Fort Family also collaborated with Survivor Outreach Services (SOS), who assisted in getting the infant registered so the Family could receive all of the relevant benefits to which they are entitled.  Fort Family is standing by to provide additional resources as the Family’s needs change.

Army Reserve (AR) Child, Youth & School Services (CYSS) Program

On Saturday, 6 Jun 2015, the CYSS Program supported the 87th Family Day with a CYSS briefing and youth activities.  Character Matters Curriculum was presented to youth in attendance at the Horace B. Hanson Army Reserve Center in Birmingham, Alabama.  The overview of the Character Matters Curriculum included an activity for each of the “six pillars of character”, during which the Children responded to questions and engaged in open discussion.  An Army Reserve Youth was one of seven who participated in youth activities; she plans on using the six pillars of character in her daily life with her Mother and friends, and at school.  The pillar she talked about the most was the character development of Respect.  She wants to further her education by attending college to become a lawyer, and utilize those pillars of character in working with clients.  She has been involved in many AR CYSS activities and is looking forward to others in the future.
