FFSC Mission

The Fleet and Family Support Program (FFSP) provides unified, customer-focused, consistent, and efficient FFSP programs and services to support sustained mission and Navy readiness. We provide the right services at the right time, to strengthen personal and family competencies to meet the unique challenges of the military lifestyle.

FFSC Goals

The Fleet and Family Support Center is a direct result of the Chief of Naval Operations commitment to supporting Navy and Marine Corps personnel and their families. NIOC's Fleet and Family Support Center is staffed with trained, professional, dedicated people who provide information and assistance. Core services are geared toward developing skills to help individuals and families be more self-reliant and adjust to the challenges of military life, while at the same time, provide a safety net of programs and services to assist them when they need help.

All single and married active duty personnel and their family members, reservists (on extended active duty) and their families, may request assistance. Retired members and DoD civilians and their families may receive assistance on a case by case basis. FFSC welcomes questions and requests from members of all branches of service.


Established in 1994, the Navy Sexual Assault Victim Intervention Program (SAVI) offers a standardized, consistent, victim-sensitive system to prevent and respond to sexual assault Navy-wide. The name of the SAVI Program was changed to Sexual Assault Prevention and Response (SAPR) in 2009, but the services remain the same.

Counseling Services

Clinical Counseling is individual, marriage or family counseling provided by a licensed professional, free of charge. Sometimes it is necessary to bounce thoughts and ideas off of someone else. Sometimes it is most important to talk to someone who can be impartial and listen to both sides of the story. This counseling is short-term, non-medical and goal directed. FFSC counseling focuses on emotional reactions and situational difficulties such as: depression, troubled relationships, or family issues, which can result from deployments, separations, relocations, and other stresses common to the military way of life.


Life Skills Program

Prevention and enrichment programs provide knowledge, social relationship skills, and support throughout the family life cycle. The program enhances self-esteem, strengthens interpersonal competencies, and offers educational opportunities to individuals and families. Topics vary: parenting, couples communication, anger and stress management.
