Airman & Family Readiness Program
AFRP Mission Statement: The Airman & Family Readiness Program Manager (A&FRP) and the A&RFP team collaborate with the Utah National Guard State Family Program to implement higher headquarter operational plans.
Welcome to the Airman & Family Readiness Program Page! The A&FRP provides support and resources to members and families of the 151st Air Refueling Wing by developing and executing policies, programs, and processes that enhance individual, family, and community readiness. The Airman & Family Readiness Program Manager reports directly to the Wing Commander to determine the vision and framework for the program and partners with the State Family Program Office on all Joint efforts including Key Volunteer training, Marriage Enrichment, Yellow Ribbon Reintegration, Personal and Financial Counseling, and Financial Assistance. Deployment cycle support is provided via individualized pre-deployment briefs, monthly well calls, Wing socials, and Key Volunteer sponsorship. In addition, the A&FRP collaborates with local community agencies to build and maintain support for the military. From recruitment to retirement, we are here for you!
The A&FRP Team core values to our Air Guard members and their Families with:
Deployment Cycle Support
Personal and Family Readiness
Wounded, Ill, and Injured Support Services
Information and Referrals
Life Skills Education
Community Disaster/Crisis/Evacuation Support viz the EFAC
Exceptional Family Member Support
Military Child Education Information
The Airman and Family Readiness Program Manager ensures program regulations are met; guarantees Commanders, Military Points of Contact, and Key Volunteers understand and promote their vision for Family Readiness; and investigates and researches community resources that further assist and promote our members. The AFRPM also assists Airmen with resources, referrals, and financial assistance qualifications, as well as supporting Commanders/Military Points of Contact/Key Volunteers. Additionally, the AFRPM supports and develops the Yellow Ribbon Reintegration Program, Strong Bonds Marriage Enrichment, and the Resiliency programs. These three programs promote family unity before, during, and after deployments. Introducing the reintegration and reconstitution process to the family and military member before and after a deployment develops and confirms the Mission Readiness of our members and their support system.
