FAP provides the opportunity through the programs and training to share information, enhance and develop stress management and coping skills and link to support services. Everyone can benefit from prevention and education. It is important that soldiers and their families realize that when stressed, they are more vulnerable to life’s challenges. A little extra support is sometimes needed. FAP can also provide assistance with linking to the other programs and services within Family Advocacy and other services on Fort Huachuca.
We provide personal financial readiness and consumer affairs prevention and education programs for Service Members, Family Members, Reserve Components, and DA civilians.

Army Family Action Plan is an Army-wide program that allows all members of the Army (active duty, retired military, family members and civilian employees) the opportunity to voice concerns and voice issues to installation and Army leadership. AFAP facilitates many positive changes that enhance the Army Experience. Issues are generated and collected from the Fort Huachuca community and are addressed at the annual installation conference. Issues that are not resolved at Installation level are forwarded to MACOM and then Department of Army for resolution. The program allows your voice to be heard.
The Relocation Readiness Program provides assistance to military personnel, family members and DOD civilians moving to the Fort Huachuca community or personnel relocating to other military installations.

If a soldier have or suspect they have an exceptional family member, they are referred to the installation EFMP office for assistance.
Sexual harassment and sexual assault are inconsistent with Army Values and will not be tolerated. One assault is one too many. We must foster a climate of trust that respects and protects our Soldiers, civilians, and family members. We are aggressively implementing and expanding the Army’s comprehensive Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention Program. SHARP is a commander’s program. We are committed to ensuring engaged leadership at all levels to prevent sexual assault and sexual harassment.
