The Army Family Covenant AFC is the Armys promise to provide balance in sustaining Soldiers and their families by standardizing and funding family programs and services providing top quality health care improving housing ensuring excellence in schools, youth programs, and child care expanding employment and educational opportunities for families improving Soldier quality of life and providing Soldiers and their families a supportive environment where they can live and thrive. Change in a mature, successful organization is difficult, takes time and commitment, and requires an implementation strategy. Therefore, implementing the AFC will not only require change in concepts, programs, products, services, facilities, systems, and images, but more importantly, it will take commitment on the part of the Armys leadership to ensure that the AFC lives up to its promise. Using Kotters Eight Stage Process of Creating Change, this paper will examine how well the Army is doing in implementing the AFC, and whether the program is reducing Army families stress.
