Family Employment Readiness Program
The Navy recognizes that moving every few years creates career challenges for military spouses, especially when stationed overseas or in remote areas. Our Family Employment Readiness Program (FERP) offers family members a variety of resources to tackle those challenges.
Workshops have been created to help you plan a career, launch a job search, write the resume, learn interview techniques, find information on federal employment, conduct self-assessments, set goals and even take vocational tests. FERP also offers computer tutorial programs to help you build technical skills.
The goal of FERP is to help you learn how to get a job and maintain a career you enjoy, as a military family member. Let FERP help you today.
If you don't live near a Fleet and Family Support Center, many services, such as coaching and resume reviews, can be done via the phone or email.
· Personal Financial Management education programs promoting financial stability
The Fleet and Family Support Center provides financial education, training and counseling that emphasize long-term financial responsibility through instruction on sound money management, debt management, saving, investing and retirement planning.

We live a mobile lifestyle in the military. Every few years we receive “Orders” to a new location, which means we have to pack up and move. Moving is stressful even for the most experienced mover. Let us assist you in making your move as smooth as possible. We offer many programs at the Fleet and Family Support Center. Some of the programs we offer for Relocation are:
Moving with Children
Moving with Exceptional Family Members (EFM Program)
New Spouse Orientation
