What is a Family Care Plan?  
A Family Care Plan outlines the short and long term child care provisions for your child or children. It is required of certain service members such as single parents and dual-military parents to ensure that families are taken care of during times of drills, annual training, mobilization and deployment. They typically include the name and contact information for a non-military person agrees to accept care of the member's children at any time, 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, in the event the military member is called to duty or deployed with no-notice. The short-term provider must live nearby and sign the family care plan, indicating that they understand the responsibilities that are being entrusted to them. The military member(s) must also designate a second non-military person, who agrees to provide long-term care for their children in the event the military member(s) are deployed for a significant period, or in the event they are selected for an unaccompanied overseas tour, or are assigned to a ship at sea. The long-term care provider does not have to live in the local area, but the family care plan must contain provisions to transfer the child(ren) from the short-term care provider to the long-term care provider (finances, airline tickets, etc.), in the event a no-notice deployment turns into a long-term deployment. The long-term care provider must sign the family care plan, indicating that they understand the responsibilities that are being entrusted to them.
