Veteran and military families face many unique challenges. They may struggle with the stress of deployment (or coming home), parenting, finances, employment, or domestic violence. SFSC’s services are designed to help veteran and active duty families find community resources, support kids, build resiliency, develop effective parenting skills, and manage stress. SFSC understands the challenges of veteran and military families because our team has lived military service backgrounds – personally or through a family member. Our team of Peer Navigators and Clinical Case Managers understand what it means to be a veteran or active duty family. Who we serve We provide free support for all of Orange County’s military- and veteran-connected families with children, regardless of length of service, type of discharge, rate of disability, financial need or marital status. We also provide services to extended family members who are providing guardianship over the children of veterans, active duty and reservists.
