The Army Victim Advocacy Program

Helping Army Families to Build Strong Bonds

Welcome to the Family Advocacy Program (FAP) at Fort Stewart and Hunter Army Airfield, offered through Army Community Service.

Our mission is to provide services to support readiness of Soldiers and their Families to promote self-reliance, resiliency, and stability.

We are dedicated to preventing spouse and child abuse through education, prompt reporting, investigation, intervention and treatment.

The Family Advocacy Program provides a variety of services to Soldiers and Families to enhance their relationship skills and improve their quality of life.
 

DA policy is to prevent spouse and child abuse, to protect those who are victims of abuse, to treat those affected by abuse, and to ensure personnel are professionally trained to intervene in abuse cases. Since many incidents of abuse constitute violations of the law, DA policy also recognizes a commander's authority to take disciplinary or administrative action in appropriate cases.

MOST IMPORTANT among our objectives is the PREVENTION of spouse and child abuse or neglect. We do this by providing or coordinating with a variety of programs and services on and off-post which together do the following:

  • Provide the installation commander staff assistance in addressing the problems of spouse and child abuse.
  • Provide information and education designed to support strong, self-reliant families and enhance coping skills.
  • Provide services to at-risk families who are vulnerable to the kinds of stresses which can lead to abuse.
  • Identify abuse as early as possible in order to strengthen the family and prevent the recurrence of abuse.
  • Encourage voluntary self-referral through education and awareness programs.
  • If you know someone who is in immediate danger of domestic violence call 911 or 767-3032 for the IVA 24HR hotline.
  • Child Maltreatment Prevention: http://dhs.georgia.gov/
  • If you fear a child is in immediate danger call 911 or the RPOC number at (912) 767-0025.
