Abstract:

The Joint Service Family Support Network is an Office of the Secretary of Defense pilot program in the Pacific Region, working in concert with civilian agencies, intended to establish a comprehensive multi-agency approach for community support and services to meet the diverse needs of Active, mobilized Guard, and Reserve Service Members and their families. The Global War on Terrorism presents new challenges for military families. Family needs of an Expeditionary Force will likely remain constant or increase regardless of the length of the Global War on Terrorism. The current stove-piped component systems are not structured or funded to efficiently and effectively deliver services. This paper analyzes specific outcomes resulting from initiatives and informal net-working that are occurring during the pilot period. It also addresses issues that need to be identified for higher headquarters consideration and resolution.
