The Unit, Personal, and Family Readiness Program (UPFRP) is a unit centric program, guided by the Family Readiness Command Team that reinforces the relationship between the unit and the services relevant to the unit, the unit members, and their families. The primary goal of UPFRP is to empower Marines and family members, providing them the opportunities to not just survive but to thrive while taking on the challenges of the military lifestyle.
Readiness & Deployment Support educates and prepares military members and their families to cope with the challenges of all types of deployments and family separations including the Command team members and Deployment Readiness Coordinator who will guide families and Marines through deployments.
Family readiness is a combat multiplier, equally as important as individual, equipment and combat readiness. It is the responsibility of the individual Marine and their family to successfully balance life, career and mission events. They are supported by the enduring partnership between the unit’s Family Readiness Command Team and Marine Corps Family Team Building (MCFTB).
