Give Parents a Break

The Air Force Aid Society (AFAS) recognizes that Air Force families are subject to unique stresses due to the nature of military life—deployments, remote tours of duty, extended working hours, etc. The purpose of this program is to offer eligible active duty Air Force parents a few hour’s breaks from the stresses of parenting. Families may use this time to suit their personal needs.

Eligibility is for Active duty Air Force families where a parent is feeling stress due to unique circumstances such as:

  • Whose spouse is deployed, on extended TDY or a remote tour of duty
  • Member has been experiencing a family crisis such as the birth of a baby, serious illness of a family member, death in the family, extended illness of a family member
  • Member has been required to work extensive extended shifts
  • Having a child with special needs

In order to utilize this program, families may receive a referral from the Airman & Family Readiness Center, their squadron commander/first sergeant, a chaplain, or Family Advocacy personnel. All required forms must be completed and submitted and a reservation made with the Child Development Center by noon on the Wednesday prior to the GPAB date.
