As a member of the Air National Guard, Airmen are offered a variety of benefits and resources.

One resource at the 178th Wing is the Airman and Family Readiness Program which offers an array of services to support Airmen and their families. This program strives to provide multiple benefits and resources to members in order to improve quality of life and enhance mission success.

Personal financial readiness is one of the top utilized resources offered to members. Financial readiness support includes budget planning assistance, emergency financial assistance and credit management for members as well as their dependents.

“The top program we offer is financial support which is the most needed,” said Jane Esprit, the 178th Wing Airman and Family Readiness Program manager.

Another benefit that this program offers is employment support for service members and their spouses.

“The program we offer teaches how to write a resume, interview skills and we provide classes on federal job search,” said Esprit.

Deployment support is a third resource that Airmen and their families can utilize when in need. The program offers family outreach support, care packages for deployed members and resources for separated families.

“Deployment support is one of the most impactful resources that we offer the family,” said Esprit.

The Airman and Family Readiness program offers multiple resources including transition assistance, volunteer opportunities and information and referral programs. These resources are available 24 hours a day. For more information contact Jane Esprit at (937) 525-2583.
