The Seymour Johnson Air Force Base Airman and Family Readiness Center is meant to be a one stop shop for assistance to Airmen and their families.

Whether professional or personal, or anything in between, the A&FRC has everything an Airman may need to maintain readiness, lethality, and professionalism.

The center provides personal financial readiness, family readiness, personal and work life, transition assistance, relocation assistance and much more.

If an Airman or spouse is in need of employment during or after service, the A&FRC offers employment assistance that can help with job searching. Additionally, service members can participate in resume and interview skills courses and a spouse education seminar.

Furthermore, the A&FRC can provide emergency financial assistance through the Air Force Aid Society for both active duty and retired Airmen and their families. The AFAS can provide interest-free loans or grants dependent upon the situation.

Also located in the A&FRC, is the Military and Family Life Counseling program which is staffed by masters-level or higher licensed social workers that provide support to military service members and their families.

The MFLC's services are free of charge and maintain confidentiality and anonymity. MFLC services complement and augment existing military support services but do not see anyone who is currently receiving services "in the system."

MFLC counselors help service members and their families address day-to-day stressors of military life and the impact of deployment and reintegration including issues with communication, grief and loss, daily life issues and more.

Finally, the A&FRC also has volunteer resources that provide recruitment, placement, recognition and training opportunities for base and community volunteers.

Whether it's a service member or a dependent, the A&FRC has a wide variety of avenues and programs ready to help when needed.

"We care about each of you and want to help," said Jeff Craver, A&FRC flight chief. "Stop by or give us a call to let us prove that to you."
