About the Partner / Provider


Ready for what, you ask? Anything. The National Guard Family Program strives to make sure that you, the Family, are prepared for whatever may be ahead of you, no matter what phase you are currently traveling through. Through training and education with the National Guard Family Program, Guard Members and Guard Families are fully prepared for that challenge, whether it is before, during or after deployment.

Family Readiness is the level of awareness Families and their Guard Members have in preparation for that call to state or federal active duty. Whether your Guardsman is attending a military school, providing state or local disaster relief, or defending freedom, our Family Readiness Program is invaluable in providing the concentrated military support that is critical throughout the deployment cycle.

To aid you in navigating through this military life, the Six Steps to Family Readiness have been developed. Each step addresses challenges, victories, and support networks provided to you, the Families, and the Guard Members. We believe if Steps 1 through 3 are followed, Steps 4 through 6 will be much smoother for the Families and the Guard Members.
