Soldier and Family Assistance Centers

Soldier and Family Assistance Center

Soldier and Family Assistance Centers (SFACs) are located near most Soldier Recovery Units (SRUs) to assist wounded, ill and injured Soldiers and their Families. SFACs are comprehensive, centralized coordinating offices that provide a variety of services to assist Soldiers and their Families with administrative and personal needs during their stay at the SRU. Download the SFAC Fact Sheet for more information.

The Soldier’s squad leader will escort the Soldier and his/her Family to the SFAC within the first week at the SRU.
