The Army Community Service Exceptional Family Member Program(EFMP) provides advocacy and assistance to service members who have a family member with special needs. Any family member who requires special medical or educational services must be enrolled. Medical or educational needs that qualify for enrollment include (but are not limited to) Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Asthma, Diabetes, Learning Disorders, Down Syndrome, and Mental Illness, including treatment for anxiety or depression.
EFMP provides resources and referral to available community services, support groups, education workshops, and recreational activities. EFMP advocates on behalf of soldiers and families who may be experiencing difficulty in obtaining the services they feel they need. We also have a resource library with books and videos on a variety of topics that are available for checkout.
