Family and MWR Mission Statement

Family and MWR exists because the U.S. Army is committed to the well-being of the community of people who serve and stand ready to defend the nation.

Our Mission is to serve the needs, interests and responsibilities of each individual in the Army community with support and leisure services designed to enhance the quality of their lives for as long as they are associated with the Army, no matter where they are.

WE pledge to meet the needs of our customers — active, Reserve, and Guard soldiers, civilian employees, retirees, all respective family members, and other eligible participants — with Family and MWR services comparable to those available off-post.

We make sure our customers have access to the services they want and need by informing them and connecting them to our broad range of programs — from family, child and youth services to recreation, sports, entertainment, travel and leisure activities.

We protect our customers’ access to our many programs by maintaining service quality, which ensures that our programs deliver real value, are truly enjoyed and have adequate participation to guarantee their availability when needed.
