Exceptional Family Member Program
The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) provides non-medical support for exceptional family members of all branches of service, including Active Duty, Reserves, Veterans, DoD Civilians, and Contractors. An Exceptional Family Member is a service member, spouse, or dependent who has special medical, mental, or educational needs that require ongoing care. The EFMP Support Coordinator is here to help families get ready for a PCS, answer questions about respite care, provide assistance with schools, host engaging events, and serve as a contact for local resources.
The EFMP Orientation 101 Workshop provides information to families about the Air Force EFMP Program. Whether you are new or just want a refresher, EFMP Assignments, Medical, and Family Support will be on hand to provide information and answer questions about the program. Topics such as enrollment, navigating assignments, Family Member Travel Screening (FMTS) process, and program support such as events, resources, and assistance with schools will be addressed. All are welcome to attend.
EFMP Educational Activities & Events
The EFMP Program offers educational activities and events to improve the quality of life for those that are diagnosed with special needs. Activities will help build resilience, strengthen sensory/motor skills, enhance relationships, improve family adaptation, promote inclusion, destigmatize status, and create awareness. Examples of activities we have offered before are Hearts Apart, Sensory Bowling, Rock Climbing, Pasta Making, and Adaptive Sailing.
