Program Overview
Spouses’ clubs provide a support system, create fellowship opportunities, offer community service, and furnish educational information. All clubs seek to improve the quality of life of their members, while promoting the feeling of belonging to the Coast Guard community.

Spouses’ clubs provide important community outreach for newcomers. Clubs support the unit’s Ombudsman, assist with sponsor or orientation programs, conduct or coordinate community service projects, update relocation packages, provide community support in emergency situations, and provide other types of support based on the unique needs of their local community.

Spouses’ clubs support Coast Guard Work-Life programs by participating in selected family-related initiatives and sponsoring workshops or other training opportunities related to service benefits.
