           The Personal Financial Management Program is a starting point for service
   members and their families to acquire financial management skills and consumer
   education. The demands of military life are challenging. Providing the military
   community with the basic principles and practices of sound money management makes
   theses demands attainable and improves the balance between military career and family
   life.
           Consumer education and financial management skills are tools necessary to
   receive maximum benefits from the military paycheck and reduces the worry and
   frustration over the continual changes in the military life-style. When Marines have
   financial problems or are not satisfied with their standard of living, they may not be
   thinking about their job as a Marine or they may consider leaving the Corps. It is,
   therefore, crucial to readiness and retention for Marines to be comfortable with their
   standard of living and their income.

          The Volunteer Programs Office serves to enhance combat readiness by
strengthening military families. The programs’ function is to involve individual
spouses, retirees, active duty military, and other members as volunteers in the active
life on the Combat Center. The program serves the military community by creating
a pool of talented volunteers who make MCAGCC a better place to live and work.
Family members can maintain current skills, learn new skills, build resume
experience, meet new people, and become more involved in the community around
them.
          In addition, the program seeks to help strengthen an organization’s work
force and to provide services to an organization’s clients in a more effective and
efficient manner.

        Marine Corps Community Services is focused on providing the Retiree
community with the valued goods and service that they are have earned with their
many years of dedicated service.
        To this end, MCCS has established Retiree Affairs Programs at each of
our bases and stations that offer information about issues of interest to retirees and
serves as a focal point for the group. The Retired Activities Office (RAO) was
established to assist retired military members and their families with issues
relating to their pay, benefits, and entitlements. The RAO acts as a single point of
contact within the command at each military installation.
        When military resources cannot provide assistance, RAO has a
responsibility to help meet a retiree’s or family member’s needs through other
available programs and services. While this is not always possible, RAO will
work to protect your privacy, promote your well being and advocate for you.

Family Advocacy Program (FAP)
(760) 830-6345

        Family Advocacy is a program designed to assist families experiencing the
trauma of abuse. Counselors are trained in the dynamics of abuse in order to assist in
protecting victims, as well as seeking ways to support families in need of assistance.
There are many negative consequences that affect families experiencing abuse.
        Support resources include information on spouse and child abuse, victim
advocacy, counseling for individuals, couples and children, as well as support groups for
men and women. These services are provided, free of charge, for those seeking help.
        Additionally, classes on stress management, anger management, child and teen
parenting, financial management and building self-esteem, are offered to educate
individuals in dealing with stressful situations.
        Anyone experiencing abuse is encouraged to seek help immediately. Research
shows that the earlier help occurs the sooner families can make positive changes.
Research also proves that without assistance abuse problems persist and become more
unbearable over time.

DDRC’s primary responsibility is to support Marine Corps illegal drug use prevention
activities (e.g., DDR budget illegal drug use education, and urinalysis testing). Working

    Interviews with key personnel in military and civilian communities are essential to
    the assessment.

            Reduction (DDR) program (e.g., DDR budget, annual plan and MOEs).
        o To accomplish this task, the DDRC will be required to use available surveys
            and reports in an ongoing effort to enhance the DDR program.
   Prepare, review, and maintain materials to be used in the DDR program (i.e., lesson
    plans, resource guides, films, and other sources of information).
   Provide illegal drug use prevention education to Marines and civilian employees on
    their installation.
   Plan and organize DDR events and activities on their installation.
    Disseminate educational materials to military/civilian employees.

   Perform other duties and responsibilities critical to the functioning of the DDR
    program (e.g., SACO/S training, budget, reports, urinalysis statistics and command
    inspections).
