Family Advocacy Program

The Family Advocacy Program builds healthy communities by providing programs designed to educate Airmen about the prevention and treatment of child and partner abuse. The FAP is comprised of three main components: Prevention, Maltreatment education and Research and Evaluation.

The Prevention/Outreach program coordinates and implements primary and secondary prevention services that include education and psychosocial skills training, advocacy, collaboration, community intervention, referral to community resources, and marketing.

The Maltreatment services provide comprehensive family assessment, intervention, and case management to all eligible beneficiaries where there is an alleged incident of family maltreatment.

The FAP also sponsors targeted and system-wide research and evaluation of prevention and intervention services. The Central Registry staff maintains a database on family maltreatment cases and statistical reports are generated to assess trends, respond to OSD, DoD, AF senior leaders, and provide opportunities for process outcome and compliance improvement.
