 Unit, Personal and Family Readiness Program


The Unit, Personal and Family Readiness Program trains and prepares every Marine and their family to ensure optimum resiliency when faced with life cycle events. When every Marine and family in a unit reaches the optimum level of resiliency, a high state of personal and family readiness will result, thereby ensuring the unit's high state of readiness.

Family is defined as ALL members of a Marine's family. Marines have three families: the family they are born into, the family they are sworn into, and the family they are married into. Therefore, family support shall be accessible and provided to Marines (regardless of marital status), spouses, children, wards, and the designated parents/extended family members of Marines.

The goal of the Unit, Personal and Family Readiness Program is to provide resource information and training in addition to support services to enhance a Marine's personal and family readiness. A Marine must ensure his or her personal and family affairs are in order so that he or she will remain fully focused on the mission, whether in garrison or in combat.


  • Is prepared for family separations and life events
  • Understand the additional responsibilities that will fall on the family when the Marine departs
  • Is knowledgeable of and able to utilize information about benefits, entitlements, programs and services provided through the Department of Defense, Marine Corps and the community
