The Family Readiness Group (FRG) provides an avenue of mutual support and assistance and a network of communication among family members, the chain of command, and community resources.  The primary purpose of any FRG is to encourage self-sufficiency among its members by providing information, referral assistance, and mutual support. 

Key Lessons 

  • The FRG encourages self-sufficiency among its members. 
  • The FRG achieves family readiness by providing emotional support and activities that  build a cohesive team. 
  • The FRG and the Rear Detachment (Rear D) provide the primary support to family members during a unit’s deployment. 

Family readiness initiatives are designed to assist Army families during periods of deployment or emergency and provide a means of information flow between the military (Rear D) and family members. During periods of non-deployment, FRG activities are directed at developing a sense of community among families in partnership with their unit. Knowing family members will have the collective support of unit FRGs and the Rear D command group allows Soldiers and leaders to focus on mission requirements.
