Family Sponsor Program

Moving to a new community can be challenging and who better to help your family than a family that is already in Greenwood who is part of your unit!
 
WHO and WHERE?
Military families who are newly posted to 14 Wing Greenwood and to other families affected by duty-related separations.

WHAT?
The Family Sponsor Program is a program that aims to ease the process of families getting settled into their new surroundings, while facilitating their access to the family support and services they need. The volunteer family sponsor will also facilitate their introduction to other families within the unit.

WHY?
Mobility and separation are two major stressors for military families.
This program:
  • Helps families to integrate into the community sooner and build stronger connections;
  • Helps to encourage grass-roots solutions;
  • Links families to their unit;
  • Promotes individual, family, and unit readiness; and
  • Supports resiliency in families.
 
HOW?
DO YOU NEED A SPONSOR FOR YOUR FAMILY?
  • Contact the GMFRC Coordinator of Information & Second Language Services to apply for a sponsor. We will assign a family sponsor from your new unit.
