About Us

  
The Soldier and Family Assistance Center strives to provide a
supportive environment for Soldiers and Family Members as they deal with the stress and uncertainty of injury and the effects of war.
 
The SFAC conducts referral, liaison and coordination with installation and
local agencies to deliver non-medical services to Warriors in Transition and Family Members in support of the Army Medical Action Plan.  The SFAC provides services on-site at the SFAC facility, brings forward services on a part-time basis, or establishes priority appointments on behalf of Warriors in Transition at the office.
 
These delivery methods along with caring professional staff ensure Warriors and their Families are taken care of whether they are transitioning to civilian life or are returning back to duty in another unit.

 

The Fort Leonard Wood Soldier and Family Assistance Center (SFAC) is intended to be a center for
Warriors in Transition (WTs), Department of Defense (DoD) personnel, and their Families to gather
for comradeship, to share information, and to provide tailored, integrated support services in a warm,
friendly environment.
 
The SFAC is designed to provide direct support to Warriors in Transition and their Family Members
while assigned to the Fort Leonard Wood Warrior in Transition Unit (WTU).  The Soldier and Family
Assistance Center is partnered with the WTU to provide the full range of services and is located at
1430 3rd St, Bldg 340
 
The SFAC provides coordination with installation support services to ensure that the WT has priority
placement for all housing, rehabilitation, career development, education and any other services
needed to expeditiously assist the WT in transforming back to active duty or in transitioning from the
Army.  All support services will be provided on site at the SFAC facility, brought forward on a part-time,
as needed basis or established as priority appointments on behalf of WTs at other offices.
