What is the Unit Family Readiness Program?

This support is provided through proactive outreach and intervention using Official Communication, Information and Referral and Readiness and deployment Support. This support is extend to the entire family unit and includes children, spouses, parents and other extended family members.
Who can participate?
Anyone and everyone is encouraged to participate. This can include parents, grandparents, siblings, spouses, fiancés, children and more. If you are interested, we'd love to have you.
How can I help?
Family Readiness Advisor: These individuals work with the Family Readiness Command Team to provide feedback and suggestions. A Family Readiness Advisor embodies the commander's goals and intents and helps assure that all unit members have a "voice".
Family Readiness Assistant: These individuals work closely in support of the Family Readiness Command Team and the Family Readiness Officer by helping to execute the commander's intent with regard to the Unit Family Readiness Program. They work closely in support of Service Members and their families and provide resources and referrals when necessary.
Morale Support Volunteers: Individuals who volunteer to participate in specific events. These volunteers assist with the planning, coordination and execution of the event.
Our Family Readiness Program would not thrive without the help and support of our fantastic volunteers. If you would like to volunteer with the Family Readiness Program, no matter how small the commitment, please contact me!
I invite you to come and visit me so we can get to know each other better. Again, welcome to the 1st Battalion 11th Marines family!
