The Ombudsman program serves as a link between Coast Guard units and families. Ombudsmen assist units and families by providing information about family services, sources of assistance, Coast Guard and unit policies, activities of interest to family members, family benefits, and other information to minimize disruption related to relocation and deployments. The program is not intended to provide counselors to Coast Guard families, but rather to provide a liaison between the Command and families.
If you are new to the area please fill out the Ombudsman Check-In form and return to me or the Admin Office located in Building 212 at Sector New York.
Additional duties and responsibilities of the Ombudsman can found in COMDTINST 1750.4D
