National Guard Family Program To enhance quality of life for National Guard members, their families, and the communities in which they live. We support you, the Guard Family, and your Guard Member.

We are here to support you 24/7 through our website or your Family Program Office. With the ever changing face and duties of the National Guard, it is imperative to look to the future of Family Programs while remaining flexible in the present. Our goal is to support you along your journey, as a family member of the national Guard in any and every way. Without you, the family member, standing by your National Guard member, a successful National Guard does not exist. Your success and self-reliance are our motivators; we strive to support and educate in every way possible.

I am conducting research on the effects of multiple deployments on family functionality of selected reserve personnel. My aim is to get a better understanding of the ways in which the frequency and duration of deployments are associated with the health and functionality of the family. Specifically what are the negative consequences on the emotional health and well-being of the family. What are ways in which we can minimize the negative consequences that may be interfering with the emotional development. Please pass this on to anyone in the Reserves that has at least one child. Effects of Deployment of Families Please take this survey. Your response is important! survey.zohopublic.com
