We are the Mobilization/Deployment and Stability Support Program (MDSSO)
This program has three (3) tiers of service:
1. MDSSO helps support community readiness during deployments and emergencies. We ensure programs align with unit deployment cycles, provide pre and post deployment support and assist unit Commanders with readiness. As a reminder, units that be away from home station longer than 30 days are required to conduct an ACS Deployment/Seperation brief. Don't forget to schedule a Spouse Reintegration brief prior to the Soldiers return. This training is education AND interactive to prepare the Spouses for a successful reunion.
2. MDSSO assists Commanders with their Family Readiness Groups (FRGs). REAL (Readiness Essentials for Army Leaders) Training ciriculium is the primary source for training Family Readiness Group Volunteers. and Command Teams. SOLDIER READINESS + FAMILY READINESS = UNIT READINESS.
3. MDSSO is your link to continious support when the EFAC (Emergency Family Assistance Center) is activitated. This facilty when activated by the Garrison Comander is your "One Stop" shop to get updated information, as well as contact with Installation Agencies in a Family safe facility. The EFAC is staffed with Garrison and ACS Staff members to help Family during Crisis, Natural Disasters and deployment.

Army Community Service is proud to have certified Master Resilience Trainers on staff. This training has been developed to make Army Soldiers, DA Civilians and Family members more resilient and better able to cope with the stress of Military service and life. These trainers have been charged with increasing the level of resilience within Army Families. Being resilient is much more than just "bouncing back", it is about mental and emotional strength as well.
