ARFP Assists Soldiers and Families with Real Issues

Fort Family Outreach and Support Specialist Assists Army Reserve Soldier with Resource to Pay Electric Bill

Fort Family received a call from a non-mobilized TPU Soldier who wanted to thank Fort Family for assisting her with financial resources for her electric bill. Her service had been disconnected for a week, and she had a bill in excess of $600. Fort Family provided several financial assistance resources, including auntbertha.com. The Soldier stated that she used auntbertha.com to connect with her local social services office but was initially denied assistance. However, after contacting a supervisor at the social services office she was awarded $600 to pay most of her electric bill. She stated that she only has to pay a few dollars and her service will be reconnected immediately. She stated that she was glad she kept Fort Family’s phone even though she never thought that she was going to need it.

Army Strong Community Center (ASCC) Connects Family Member with Counseling Resource

The Family member stated that her step-daughter is having a difficult time adjusting and is concerned that situation may get worse once school starts. The CSC provided the Family member with a Military OneSource Non-Medical Counseling pamphlet and informed her that her step-daughter is eligible for up to 12 sessions of counseling at no cost to the Family. The Family member later followed up with the CSC to thank her for the information. She went on to say that they contacted Military OneSource and the step-daughter was scheduled for a counseling session within the upcoming week.
