AFAS 2019 Annual Report

THE AFAS NETWORK Ensuring Airmen Worldwide Access to Society Programs

Airman and Family Readiness Centers around the world are home to base level AFAS sections. Community Readiness Consultants and Technicians in those A&FRCs oversee AFAS programs at the base level, disbursing emergency assistance loans and grants, as well as facilitating AFAS on-base community programs. These base level AFAS representatives are invaluable to our mission-driven focus. In the event there is no Air Force base in your area, AFAS maintains cross-servicing agreements with Army Emergency Relief, Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society, Coast Guard Mutual Assistance, and the American Red Cross . These partnerships make it possible for military members of all services to receive emergency assistance 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Because of these partnerships, we are – quite literally – always there for our Airmen. Other important partners helping us help Airmen include: Air Force Wounded Warrior Program and the Air Force Association , which collaborate with the Society to support wounded Airmen; Carlson Wagonlit Travel , which provides Airmen and their families with low-cost electronic ticketing for emergency travel; and the Fisher House , which provides housing built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers.
