Who We Serve?
Did you know that the Air Force provides FREE short-term childcare for EFMP families? This specialized care is designed to help reduce the stresses associated with caring for an exceptional family member (EFM). Respite Care cannot be used for work or school purposes, including before- or after-school care. It is only intended to be used for R&R (rest and relaxation) time for the main caregivers of the EFM. Please contact Family Support for more information.
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.
