The strongest force is family
Military families experience a unique intersection of challenges: extended separation from loved ones, frequent relocation, and the elevated risk inherent in the military member's work.
Translated into everyday life, this means birthdays are missed, first steps need to be recorded, and relationships need to be re-tuned with every departure and homecoming. It means that kids' schools are changed and spouses' jobs are left behind. It means worry until the member is safely home.
Despite all this, military families are tremendously proud to serve and make their family situations work amidst the challenges.
The Mainland BC Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) provides members of Canadian Armed Forces families with the resources and support they need to meet these challenges and thrive.
