Deployment Support

The Children’s Deployment Support Program (CDSP) is a peer-support program delivered in the local schools (JK to Grade 8) from October to May.

Sessions will help children to to understand their feelings, the changes, and possible stressors that occur before, during and after a deployment. In a safe, comfortable environment, the children learn positive living skills and age-appropriate stress management strategies to help them with their deployment situation.

April is the Month of the Military Child

The Month of the Military Child is set aside to celebrate children growing up in military families.  It is an opportunity to recognize their strength and resiliency. 

Throughout April, children participating in various PMFRC programs will be doing activities to recognize the Month of the Military Child. 

The kids at our Children's Deployment Support Program celebrated the Month of the Military Child by learning that the dandelion symbolizes their strength and resiliency -- their roots will grow anywhere, and they are impossible to destroy.
