What is a Soldier and Family Readiness Group (SFRG)?

Soldier and Family Readiness Groups (SFRG) are command-sponsored programs; helping to build strong Families and bridge the gap between Families and units. SFRGs promote the commander’s vision throughout the unit’s mission, assist Families in becoming knowledgeable and self-reliant, and solve problems at the lowest level by:

  • Providing official, accurate command information
  • Advocating efficient use of community resources
  • Reducing soldier and Family stress
