The Family Advocacy Program (FAP) helps Soldiers and their Families recognize and prepare for the unique challenges of military lifestyles. Our services include classes and workshops on topics such as parenting, communication, conflict resolution, anger management, and other topics that build or strengthen healthy relationships.   

ACS FAP also leads Fort Campbell's annual awareness campaigns on Teen Dating Violence, Child Abuse Prevention, Domestic Violence Prevention, and Safe Sleep with the goal of strengthening military Families.  

There are three sections within FAP which are Prevention Education, New Parent Support Program, and Victim Advocate Program.  In addition to these three sections, FAP also coordinates the response to reports of problematic sexual behavior between children and youth.

When putting your little ones down for bedtime or naps, remember ABC.  To reduce the risks of Sudden Unexpected Infant Death Syndrome.  Placing infants on their back in a crib is the best position and place for your little ones to sleep.  Although stuffed animals and blankets are often used as decor for cribs, they are not appropriate items to place in cribs with babies.  For more information about safe sleeping for infants and newborns, call (270) 412-5500.
