The Guard is mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, husbands, wives, employers, friends, neighbors - entire communities.
This "Guard Family" has answered the call of a nation and its people. The next time someone mentions the Guard,
remember it's more than the people in uniform who make sacrifices.
The 110th Wing Airman and Family Readiness Program provides education, support, and resources that promote individual and family readiness. We work with local and state support agencies. Together we ensure that our members and their families have resources to support success in the Michigan Air National Guard.
CHILD AND YOUTH PROGRAMS: Child and youth opportunities are sponsored by the National Guard Bureau, Michigan National Guard, and 4H through funding, grants and donations from the Department of Defense and the Association for Families. For information on child and youth camps and summits contact the A&FRC or the MING Family Programs Child and Youth Coordinator at 517-481-9894.
EMPLOYMENT ASSISTANCE: The A&FRC works with the H2H coordinator, MI Works and other programs to provide service members and their family members with assistance in the job hunt, preparing a job application/resume and preparing for interviews.
