Getting the Most Out of the Exceptional Family Member Program

April is the Month of the Military Child — a time to celebrate the joy and resilience of military children and focus on what the military community can do to support them. For service members with a child with special needs, community support is especially vital – and that’s where the Exceptional Family Member Program comes in.
