Homecoming and Reunion classes
Homecoming can be as emotional and stressful as deployment. The Family can experience the same emotional stress and strain as during deployment. This class will focus on tips and techniques to help the Family prepare for their loved one's return. We will provide information on how to make the transition during the Soldier's homecoming.
Homecoming and Reunion classes are available per FRG request. Please contact Jill MacAuley at 569-5500 for scheduling requests.
Preparing for Deployment classes
Deployment will affect every Family member. It will increase the stress on a Family and change the roles of Family members. In this class, we will focus on what Family members can do to decrease stress and emotional disturbances during this time. We will also offer tips and techniques to Family members to help cope with the emotional stress during this transition.
Preparing for Deployment classes are available per FRG request. Please contact Jill MacAuley at 569-5500 for scheduling requests.
