The Indiana National Guard’s Family Readiness program works with families of service members during deployments, and when units are stateside, to promote self-sufficiency, resiliency and stability.

Family readiness contributes to the successful achievement of the military mission. During deployments, family readiness is a force multiplier. It increases retention of service members and is a key factor for maintaining morale with the service member, his or her family, and within the unit.

Headquartered in the INNG’s Family Program Office at Tyndall Armory in downtown Indianapolis, the program provides readiness support groups in seven regions across Indiana. These groups include a family readiness assistant, military staff and carefully selected volunteers. The volunteers work with unit commanders to provide education and outreach in a group setting on topics pertinent to a unit’s readiness, such as financial assistance, communication with service members overseas, caring for children as a single parent, and much more.


If you would like to work to assist military commanders in your area with communication, education and outreach to military families, the INNG’s Family Readiness program may be right for you.
