The Maine Military Family Assistance Center is critical in providing support to geographically-dispersed military families who are unable to access services at a local base, installation, or fort. This holds especially true during long- and short-term deployments and mobilizations of a service member. The Maine MFAC serves military members and their families from all branches and statuses (active, TPU, retired, veteran). Military Family Assistance Center specialists are available 24/7 for assistance and resource referral for military families!
