What is the Strong Bonds Program?

Strong Bonds is a unit-based, chaplain-led program which assists commanders in building individual resiliency by strengthening the Army Family. The core mission of the Strong Bonds program is to increase individual Soldier and Family member readiness through relationship education and skills training.

Strong Bonds is conducted in as an offsite event in order to maximize the training effect. The retreat or “get away” provides a fun, safe, and secure environment in which to address the impact of relocations, deployments, and military lifestyle stressors.

For more information on the Strong Bonds Program, visit their website HERE or contact a member of our full time support staff at the bottom of this page.


Strong Bonds for Couples

Whether you’ve celebrated one anniversary or twenty, as an Army couple you can anticipate more excitement — and expect more challenges — than the average civilian couple. Long separations, frequent relocations, and the stress of deployment can subject Army marriages to extreme hardship.


Strong Bonds for Families

From diapers and night feedings to recitals and soccer games, the responsibilities of child-rearing can be especially difficult for military Families. Daily routine can become overwhelming when Families are faced with long separations, frequent relocations, and deployment. That’s why we developed the Strong Bonds Family program. It’s our way of saying thank you for the sacrifices your Family makes every day.


Strong Bonds for Singles

About 50 percent of the Army’s Soldiers are single and most will get married while on active duty. If you’re a single Soldier, you may also be far from home, lonely, and faced with the uncertainty of imminent deployment. These pressures can lead to hasty decision making when choosing a life partner.
