225th En BDE Family Readiness

225th En BDE Family Readiness Mission First. Family Always.
Family Readiness is the state of preparedness of service members and their Families through proactive education and support programs that promote self-reliance and enhanced individual and Family well being in peace and wartime. Family Readiness is a key factor in the unit, the service member, and Family morale, recruitment and retention of service members/Families, and ultimately in the successful achievement of military operations.

The FRG is a Command sponsored organization of all assigned Soldiers (married and single), DA civilians, volunteers and their Families (immediate and extended) that together provide mutual support and assistance and a network of communications between Family members, the chain of command, and community resources. While all of these individuals are automatically considered to be members of the FRG, participation is voluntary. The FRG encourages resiliency among the members by providing information, referral assistance and mutual support, and also provides activities that enhance the well-being and esprit de corps within the unit.

Mission: FAMILY READINESS SUPPORT MISSION: To empower commanders in their duty to deliver the Total Army Family Program, so that soldiers and families are entitled, informed, educated, assisted, and made ready for the unique demands of military life before, during, and after deployment.
