JF&CS News December 2015
JF&CS Shoulder to Shoulder is a family-centered, peer-to-peer program supporting families faced with the unique challenges that accompany military service. Through private conversations that provide support and encouragement, volunteers help identify a family’s strengths and improve their resiliency. Trained by Shoulder to Shoulder staff, volunteers are veterans, spouses, parents, and other military-connected community members who understand the pressures and hardships of military family life. This program is free of charge, completely confidential, and available to Active Duty, National Guard, Reserve, and Veteran service members, regardless of income, economic circumstances, religion, age, or discharge status.
