The Army Wounded Warrior Program (AW2) provides severely disabled Soldiers and their families with a system of advocacy and personal follow-up to assist them through rehabilitation as they transition from military service to the civilian community.
Soldier and Family Assistance Center (SFAC) services are tailored and responsive to the needs of the Warriors in Transition (WTs) and their Families. SFAC sites provide a warm, relaxed environment where Soldiers and their Families can gather to foster physical, spiritual and mental healing.
