The Army Family Covenant (AFC) represents the Army’s commitment to provide standardized programs and services to Soldiers and Families. The promise of the AFC will be sustained through continuous review and measurement of programs and services. The first holistic review of AFC programs and services was conducted to identify gaps; assess needs versus capabilities; and eliminate, consolidate, or expand services accordingly. As we continue to seek ways to improve programs and address gaps and redundancies in existing Soldier Family programs and services, it is important to again evaluate select Family and CYS programs and services to determine those most and least valuable to Army Families.
LTG Lynch, Commanding General, IMCOM is committed to ensuring the promise of the Army Family Covenant is met by providing Families the programs and services that meet their needs. All Army components are being asked to conducting a review of select Family and CYS programs and services. This review will allow Army leadership to focus required resources on those programs and services most desired by Soldiers and Families. The Army currently resources 76 programs. In an effort to better resource those programs and services most important to our Soldiers and Families, The Army needs to know the ten most valuable and ten least valuable programs from the list of 76. While rank ordering the most and least valuable programs is important to streamlining efficiencies and eliminating redundancies, the survey results are only one mechanism being used to holistically examine our programs.
Soldiers and Families may review the identified programs and services and provide feedback via the survey located at the following links on Army OneSource:
