Family Programs



AUSA, Last Frontier Chapter’s Family Programs Initiative is dedicated to providing Army Families with information and resources to help them manage the challenges of military life and address Army family concerns though AUSA National’s legislative efforts and by being active on a number of Defense and Department of the Army councils and working groups.

The Last Frontier Chapter is involved in Family Programs by providing monetary funds to local groups that support Army troops and their families.  Some examples of how these funds are used are:

  • To mail care packages to deployed troops
  • To support “family fun” activities for military families
  • Supporting events, such as the Chamber of Commerce Military Appreciation Picnic
  • To honor and recognize outstanding accomplishments by the civilian and Army communities and individuals

Many programs and resources currently exist to aid military families. Knowing where to go and what to do before a situation arises can not only give the family a sense of security, but it also helps the deploying soldier so he or she can concentrate on the Army mission and come home safely.  The Last Frontier Chapter is dedicated to providing the most up to date and accurate information to aid families with their individuals needs.
