Survivor Outreach Services (SOS) provides assistance and support to the Families and friends of our Fallen Soldiers by keeping them connected to the Army for as long as they desire.
SOS is aligned under the ACS Family of Services umbrella, and provides a dedicated team of support specialist which aid, assist, and educate our Survivor Families. SOS provides short term and long-term case management assisted by Support Coordinators, Financial Counselors and Benefits Coordinators. The SOS team is a one-stop service provider with service delivery based on specific individual needs.
SOS is available to all Survivors; spouses, children, parents, siblings, grandparents and friends grieving the loss of an active duty Soldier regardless of how they died.
SOS coordinates with Military, Non-Governmental Organizations and the surrounding local community to create a support network of assistance and resources. All Active Duty, Army National Guard and Army Reserve component Survivors are eligible to received qualified services under the SOS Program.
In order to provide continued support and better understand the concerns and experiences of our Surviving Families of the Fallen, we reach out to them through support group meetings, social media, phone calls, and letters. In addition to keeping survivors up to date on SOS matters the program is also designed to keep them connected to the surrounding military and community activities.
The Survivor Outreach Services mission is to educate the community about the program and to advocate on behalf of all families who have suffered the loss of a Soldier.
The Fort Gordon SOS Program keeps our survivors connected throughout the year with monthly support groups which are facilitated for child and adult survivors. Other events include an annual Warrior Remembrance Ceremony, Henry County Gold Star Family Day, Holiday Remembrance Ceremony and Summer Fun with SOS. All events are open to all survivors. These events provide a safe, comfortable and supportive setting for survivors to come together and meet others who may be on the same journey as themselves.
