National Faith-Based Partners

Mobilizing Faith Communities Focus Area- Army OneSource has launched a formal campaign to engage Military Chaplains, clergy, and local churches in providing services and support to meet the spiritual and emotional needs of Soldiers and their Families. Opportunities include presentations to raise awareness of the needs and role that faith communities can play, resources to reach out to Soldiers and their Families in your community, and access to established, exemplary programs that assist organizations in providing more structured services.

In addition to physical injuries, Soldiers are returning home with emotional and spiritual wounds that are harder to identify and more difficult to treat. Almost all Soldiers suffer from some form of Combat Trauma, such as intense fear, panic or hyper-vigilance. Many also sustain spiritual injuries , such as questioning of their faith, altered sense of meaning in life, loss of previously held beliefs, and feelings of ineffectiveness, shame, despair, hopelessness and guilt, to name a few. These “silent injuries” often manifest themselves in changes in behavior that include substance abuse, self-destructive or violent behavior, social withdrawal, unexplained anger, and inability to maintain close relationships.

In turn, Family Members often feel a sense of insecurity, loss, and ineffectiveness, confusion about the changes in their returning loved ones, and feelings of rejection, despair, abandonment, and hopelessness. They also begin to question their faith and spiritual beliefs.

Army OneSource is proud to announce a community outreach program, supported by the U.S. Army, to raise awareness of the unique challenges of Military life on our Service Members and their Families, and to address the growing demand for support services within communities.

Objective: To raise the awareness of and support for Soldiers and Families among denominations and churches.

The plan of action: Engage alliances, denominations, Army Chaplains and large churches in states and communities. Encourage connecting and partnering with IMCOM identified exemplary programs.
