What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Naval Services FamilyLine provides education, resources and mentoring to sea service families to help them meet the challenges of a military lifestyle. A lifestyle that is often rewarding, but can be demanding and difficult due to the unwritten expectations and the sacrifices our sea service families must endure. The programs and publications we provide are: COMPASS, Continuum of Resources and Education (CORE), Command Spouse Leadership Course (CSLC), Anchors Aweigh, and a series of Guideline Publications. Living a military lifestyle can test one’s mettle, but through the resources and education Naval Services FamilyLine offer, we help our sea service families not only survive but thrive throughout their active duty members’ military career in the Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard. Our mentors reached over 1500 sea service families in person-to-person contacts in 2019. We made over 1 million connections via our digital platforms and distributed nearly 21,000 print publications.

COMPASS

COMPASS is a standardized Team-Mentoring program developed by spouses for spouses. COMPASS focuses on spouses new to the Navy, however all spouses are welcome. COMPASS improves quality of life through education enabling spouses to understand, experience, and meet the challenges of the Navy lifestyle. With knowledge and realistic expectations, the journey can be successful and rewarding. COMPASS is a 12-hour program taught in three four-hour sessions.

CORE is a worldwide "by spouse for spouse" mentoring and education program. CORE provides ongoing workshops, seminars, classes and events targeting the Chief of Naval Operations' Family Framework goal of providing spouse training and expanding our education network. CORE events are designed to address the needs of our sea serving families at any stage on the continuum of their spouses' active duty career and provides them resources to maintain a healthy balance to ensure they thrive along the way. Currently, CORE operates in 11 Naval Base locations from Kitsap, WA to Rota, Spain, to Manama, Bahrain.

The Command Spouse Leadership Course is an intensive one week course for spouses of prospective Commanding Officers, Executive Officers, Command Master Chiefs, Chiefs of the Boat, and Command Senior Chiefs. This course promotes a team building approach to leadership and recognizes that engaged, inspired, and educated spouses of Command Leaders directly and positively impact the morale and success of the command and contribute to a command environment where sailors and families thrive. Currently, this course is provided at the Naval Education and Training Center in Newport, RI. We would like to expand its outreach to those Command Spouse Leaders who are at the tip of the spear with their sea service families but are unable to attend the course in Newport. Additionally, our goal is to develop ongoing person-to-person support and experienced mentorship for our Command Spouse Leaders in their homeport locations.

Anchors Aweigh is an orientation program designed specifically for new Navy spouses, although it is also helpful for family members, spouses who are not brand new, and for spouses of other services (Army, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, Air Force.) It was created by experienced Navy spouses specifically to help newer spouses access the most useful information easily, provide spouse perspectives and tips, and hopefully answer some of your most pressing initial questions. It is organized into eight sections:
• Navy Organization, Traditions and History
• Understanding Benefits and Privileges
• Managing Personal Finance • Moving in the Navy (PCS, which stands for Permanent Change of Station)
• Maintaining Healthy Relationships
• Dealing with Deployment
• Exploring Your Community
• Overcoming Employment Challenges
