FFSC Family Advocacy Program (San Diego Metro)

The Family Advocacy Program (FAP) provides clinical assessment, treatment and services for Service Members, their intimate partners, and family members involved in allegations of domestic abuse and child abuse.

The goal of the Family Advocacy Program is to prevent domestic violence by encouraging people to examine their own behavior and take steps to learn and practice healthier behaviors. The FAP provides a variety of interventions and treatment services to meet the needs of individuals and families. It provides counseling, clinical case management, treatment groups, and refers families to military and civilian resources as appropriate.

When abuse does occur, the FAP works to ensure the safety of victims and helps military families overcome the effects of violence and change destructive behavior patterns. FAP staff members are trained to respond to incidents of abuse and neglect, support victims, and offer prevention and treatment.
