Military Community and Family Policy provides quality of life programs to service members and their families worldwide.  Our programs and services range from commissaries, exchanges and MWR to child and youth centers, family programs and centers, and family advocacy.

Information about other important services:
We at MC&FP serve more than 2.2 million uniformed service members, 1.1 million civilian spouses and 1.8 million military children.  Your care and support is a top national security priority, and it’s our mission.
