When it comes to resilience, the mission of the Unit, Personal, and Family Readiness Program (UPFRP) is to train, educate, and prepare every Marine and their family in order to ensure optimum resiliency.

Resilience allows individuals to cope well in the face of adversity, trauma, tragedy, threats, or significant sources of stress. Greater resilience is associated with improved mental health, pain management, chronic disease management, and other outcomes. The UPFRP team collaborates with various departments to provide resources and tools to help build and better prepare one’s resiliency. 

Within the UPFRP, there are four distinct functions to assist in family resilience and readiness:

  • Official Communication: Two-way official communication between the Command, Marines, and families regarding unit and family readiness information and requirements.
  • Information and Referral: A single point-of-contact for Marines and families for the available support programs and services on base, within the community, or at the state or national level.
  • Readiness and Deployment Support: Provides resources, information as well as training and support services to enhance a Marine’s personal and family readiness.
  • Volunteer Management: Provides volunteer opportunities for spouses, parents, and extended family members.
