Keeping the community connected at Military & Family Readiness Centers

By Jai Bell JBSA-Fort Sam Houston Military & Family Readiness Center

Locating resources in your community may not be as easy as it sounds; however, support is just a phone call or click away.


The Joint Base San Antonio Military & Family Readiness Centers are dedicated to providing a full range of quality programs and services promoting self-reliance, mission readiness, resiliency and ease adaption into the military way of life.  


There are a wide variety of classes, trainings, and workshops promoting, educating and facilitating readiness and resiliency under the following core programs:


  • Relocation

  • Financial readiness

  • Employment assistance

  • Transition assistance

  • School liaison officers

  • Exceptional Family Member Program

  • Personal work and family life

  • Volunteer

  • Unit family readiness

  • Deployment


Service members, Department of Defense civilian employees (appropriated and non-appropriated) and DOD ID cardholder family members are welcome to attend classes and utilize all the services each M&FRC offers.


In addition, the centers connect patrons to resources available within the San Antonio community.


“When customers call in, we try to not only assess the specific service they initially request, but also unite them with other programs that may be beneficial for them or their family," said Leroy Shelvin, Armed Forces Action Plan coordinator.


“To make it easier for our customers to know what's going on across the JBSA M&FRCs, we have a bi-monthly calendar of events booklet highlighting everything we have going on,” Shelvin added.


Customers can sign up to receive the calendar via email or view it directly online at or on Facebook at which includes information for all three locations.
