Want to connect with Navy families? Contact an Ombudsman!
Ombudsmen are an amazing resource for Navy families, and they can provide very practical assistance to Parent Centers. How Navy Ombudsmen can help you:
- Communicate with Navy families about your Parent Center’s services
- Help invite families to trainings and workshops both on and off the installation (they use social media extensively and communicate frequently)
When a military parent dies while serving, their child may express their grief through behavior changes. This can be especially true for children who experience communication difficulties. Parent Center staff may get a call from the surviving parent when the child’s grief has a negative impact at school.

Relocation affects many aspects of life for military families including housing, nonmilitary spouse employment, schools and activities for children, childcare, and services for children with special needs.
The Holidays can be a difficult time for children of military service members, especially if a parent is away for training or on a deployment. To add further to the hardship, military families who have children with special needs may not be able to go visit extended family during this time.
