Navy Family Ombudsman Program

  • Ensures a responsive and accurate source of information between commands and families.
  • Provides an effective, well-trained information and referral service.
  • Provides a proactive information and education resource via carelines, newsletters, telephone/email trees, and briefings.
  • Delivers a positive spokesperson and role model for family members.
  • In conjunction with the Navy’s sponsor program, can facilitate the smooth transition of Sailors and their families during PCS moves.
  • Has proved to be invaluable during natural and man-made disasters.
  • Serves as a critical link for families during mobilization or geographic separation.
  • The Navy Family Ombudsman Program enables service members to be more focused and productive at work because their families have a safety net.

Since the Navy recruits Sailors, but retains families, families who are satisfied with the Navy lifestyle will more likely choose to stay Navy.
