AFAS 2020 Annual Report


Air Force Aid Society is headquartered in Arlington, Virginia. Operating with an efficient staff of 20 allows the Society to keep overhead expenses low and ensures that 100 percent of individual donations are used to help Air Force and Space Force families. Airman and Family Readiness Centers around the world are home to base level AFAS sections. Community Readiness Consultants and Technicians in thoseA&FRCs overseeAFAS programs at a base level, disbursing emergency assistance loans and grants, as well as providing 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, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Because of these partnerships, we are – quite literally – always there for our Airmen and Guardians. Other important partners helping us help Airmen and Guardians, which 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, Guardians, 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.
