Kansas Adjutant General's Department
Family Assistance Centers

Family Assistance Centers were established during times of expanded deployment to meet the needs associated with the deployment for support and assistance to National Guard and other service members and their families. When a service member is deployed for an extended period of time, families may have a variety of questions about their loved one's deployment, the benefits they now are entitled to, military pay, TRICARE, increased responsibilities (household, financial, legal, and other) that are new to them, or they may just need emotional support.

The role of a Family Assistance Specialist is to help families get the support and information they need, as quickly as possible, while lending a sympathetic ear to those in need of one. Available resources include Chaplain Services, American Red Cross, Veterans Service Organizations and a host of other agencies with direct and indirect interests in assisting and supporting military families.

We have guides and resources available to assist you with questions or problems that you may encounter all information and questions will be treated confidentially.
