Purpose

Customers receiving Family Advocacy Program Services gain new competencies, improve individual and family functioning and resiliency, make connections in their community, and reduce their risk for family violence.

Definition

Family Advocacy Program (MIL-FAP) Services include a continuum of coordinated services for families at risk of, or who have experienced, family violence including domestic abuse and/or child abuse and neglect. Services include prevention, advocacy, identification, assessment, treatment, rehabilitation, and follow-up to prevent future occurrences of family violence.

Note: The term “survivor” is used in these standards to encourage service delivery that empowers the customer experiencing family violence.

Note: Please see MIL-FAP Reference List for a list of resources that informed the development of these standards.

Note: The MIL-FAP standards were revised in September 2017 to reflect current practice. For more information see the MIL-FAP Update Summary
