Hearts Apart Program

Hearts Apart is designed to assist Family members in making prolonged separations more bearable for those Family members left behind. Whenever a Soldier is leaving on a deployment or an unaccompanied tour of duty, the Army Community Service (ACS) staff works with command to obtain accurate contact information for the Family. Once the Family is identified, ACS makes every effort to reach the Family to assess the need for services and information, provide answers to questions with ongoing information updates and act as liaison with military and civilian organizations.

ACS invites Spouses to participate in Hearts apart meetings or groups with fun-filled activities such as monthly birthday celebrations, holiday events, arts and crafts such as scrap-booking, powder puff mechanics, self-defense and much more. Hearts Apart activities will differ to meet the needs and special interest of the individuals involved, i.e., groups with many small children may tend to be child focused with emphasis on play groups while groups with more male Spouses and older children might focus on sports events and fishing. Ongoing support from ACS, as well as from old and new friends at the Hearts Apart meetings, make separations easier to handle.

Visit Relocation Readiness for:

  • information about activities during mobilization and deployment
  • find out about available FRG Training


  • If your Family will not be near your assigned installation during your mobilization, ACS can link them to the nearest military installation for support.
  • During your SRP process you will meet with ACS staff. This is a great time to ask about Hearts Apart and then provide that information to your spouse!
