USS George Washington OMBUDSMAN

   The Navy Family Ombudsman Program is designed to provide better and faster communications between Navy families and Navy officials. As official representatives of the George Washington families, our Ombudsmen are primarily liaisons between our Commanding officers and families. They can speed up communications between the command and families by passing along information so that families are always informed.


   In addition, our Ombudsman can give you information on services, upcoming events or help with a crisis in the event you are unable to resolve the crisis within your own capabilities or resources. The ombudsman program may include confidential information. This is defined by the CO as sensitive information about a service member or his/her family that is kept within the system for official use only and is relayed only on a need-to-know basis. You can put your trust in your Ombudsmen!


   An Ombudsman reaches out to individual families with friendship, information, problem solving and a helping hand. Although your Ombudsmen may sometimes act as an advocate, they do not get involved in chain-of-command matters. Use you Ombudsmen as a resource that can quickly direct you to the right people to provide help for your specific concern.


   The following individual is GW's Ombudsmen and here are some ways you can get in contact with her.
