Military family discussing needs with professional.

Family Resources

The readiness of Indiana National Guardsmen is in part dependent on the well-being of their families. We provide a continuum of services that connect both Guardsmen and their family members with resources that promote mental and physical fitness, well-being, resilience, financial management and education. Our family programs are the gateway to these resources.

 

Family Assistance
The Indiana National Guard’s Family Assistance Centers provide support to military families for a full range of situations and problems that may arise in conjunction with military deployments or in the course of the member’s service. We also provide services for veterans and for members of any branch of service. More
