Army Strong Community Center Grand Opening in Grand Rapids Michigan 03 March 2012
ASCC Mission: Army Strong Community Centers enhance the quality of life by providing information, resources and referrals.
ASCC Vision: Build resilient Families and partnerships within the community, enhancing the strength of our Expeditionary Force and the communities where they live.
The Army Strong Community Center (ASCC) is dedicated to supporting Service Members, Retirees, Veterans, and their Family Members from all branches of the military—Active and Reserve. ASCC facilities are designed to assist geographically-dispersed Service Members and their Families who may not have ready access to the services typically available on a military installation. This program was created through the efforts of Army Lt. Gen. Jack C. Stultz, chief of the Army Reserve, and his wife, Laura.
There are currently four existing Army Strong Community Center locations:
1. Rochester, NY
2. Brevard, NC
3. Coraopolis, PA
4. Oregon City, OR
The centers connect those geographically dispersed Families with support resources in their own community. The center offers information, referrals and support for service members, retirees, veterans, and Family members from all branches of the military, active and reserve. They provide assistance for Families with life management and well being issues. Included are access to health and dental benefits, housing assistance, childcare and programs.
