The Exceptional Family Member Program is for families of active duty service members.

We work with the family, base resources, and community supports to provide access to the best level of care possible. Eligible families who are enrolled in EFMP have access to respite care to assist in meeting the needs of their family. We also have a range of adaptive toys that can be checked out by parents of children with different special needs, as well as many helpful books and videos on a variety of special needs.

Enrollment in EFMP is mandatory.  Please click here for more information.
