Family Support Network

The Family Support Network

The family is the cornerstone of American society; however, modern society places demand on the family that didn’t exist in years past. These challenges can chip away at family strength and unity. The family-emphasis programs of The American Legion’s Committee on Children & Youth aim to promote the importance of family strength and integrity.

The American Legion recognizes that families of active-duty and deployed military personnel face unique difficulties and hardships. With the help of the Family Support Network, these families do not have to shoulder this burden alone. They can connect with American Legion Family members by requesting assistance through the nationwide toll-free number or electronic application. Legionnaires at the post level then provide assistance such as performing minor household chores and repairs, completing a Temporary Financial Assistance application and connecting the family with local programs.
