Additional Support Information

NEW! - A new mobile application released by the Department of Defense aims to help the military community relieve their stress. The Chill Drills app is offered free to service members and their families and offers a variety of mindfulness techniques to slow one's heartrate, lower blood pressure and improve sleep quality.

MISSION UNITEDTM from the United Way connects veterans and their families with the services they need – from securing a roof over their heads, to finding a stable job, to getting health treatment.


Free resources to help Veteran and military families raising children

Parenting can be both rewarding and challenging. Looking for tips on how to address temper tantrums, biting or early literacy? Resources to help Veteran and military families raising young children or babies are available to you FREE.

The Department of Defense is providing an additional way for military parents to find child care solutions for hourly care. Military OneSource will expand its offerings through a national online service that enables families to find, hire, and pay for care.
