 Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) The Navy’s Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) serves military family members with special needs. Enrollment in the EFMP is mandatory for all family members identified with medical (physical, mental, or emotional) or special educational requirements of a chronic nature (six months or longer). The primary goal of the EFMP is to ensure Sailors are assigned to geographic areas where their EFM’s needs can be met. Sailors must maintain eligibility for worldwide assignment, which may require them to serve on unaccompanied tours. EFMP case liaisons provide information, referral and system navigation to special needs families, link families with available military, national and local community resources, provide non-medical casemanagement, develop and maintain Individual Service Plans (ISP), and partner with the Military Treatment Facility (MTF) Coordinators to provide information, education and program enrollment assistance.

 Stress Management Courses  Building Effective Anger Management Skills

 Employment Readiness As service members prepare to transition to civilian life, preparing adequately for employment is very important. The employment specialists in the FFSC Career Development Resource Center (CDRC) provide education and one-on-one assistance with career exploration and planning, resume preparation, job search, application for federal employment, interview skills and networking.
