SPECIAL NEEDS

Family Resource Specialists (FRSs) are responsible for the administration and case management of special need(s) cases in their areas of responsibility.  All Special Needs cases are reviewed and assigned a "Level", determined by the FRSs and the Family Advocacy Specialist (FAS), utilizing a team concept.  Cases are reviewed semi-annually, or as situations warrant.  FRSs provide humanitarian reassignment consultations with Service Members and Detailers.  Every attempt is made to assign a service member to an area where his family member's special needs may be met.

Child Care Subsidy Hotline - The National Association of Child Care Resources is a federally funded agency that provides helpful information about assistance in a client's local area.  They can help the parent find options for child care payment assistance programs.  There are two programs that provide help for military personnel - deployed active duty personnel, activated or mobilized National Guardsmen and Reservists, and for active duty personnel stateside - for child care arranged off base.  Their phone number is 800-424-2246 and is actually the Child Care Aware resource; military child care programs are under Option 3 on that phone line.
