The Family Advocacy Program (FAP) helps Soldiers and their Families recognize and prepare for the unique challenges of military lifestyles. Our services include classes and workshops on topics such as parenting, communication, conflict resolution, anger management, and other topics that build or strengthen healthy relationships.   

ACS FAP also leads Fort Campbell's annual awareness campaigns on Teen Dating Violence, Child Abuse Prevention, Domestic Violence Prevention, and Safe Sleep with the goal of strengthening military Families.  

There are three sections within FAP which are Prevention Education, New Parent Support Program, and Victim Advocate Program.  In addition to these three sections, FAP also coordinates the response to reports of problematic sexual behavior between children and youth.
