Family Readiness Support Assistant (FRSA)

The mission of the Family Readiness Support Assistant (FRSA) is to maintain the continuity and stability of Family Readiness Groups (FRGs) as units undergo changes in volunteers and leadership. Operationally, the FRSA provides administrative and logistical support to commanders, rear detachment commanders, and volunteer FRG leaders. Taking the administrative burden off the volunteers allows FRG leaders to concentrate on performing outreach to Soldiers and their Family in the command, thus preserving stability on the home front, especially during periods of deployment. The FRSAs provide Family Support Services through synchronization with the Command leadership at the Brigade, Battalion, or Company level.
