This Community Needs Assessment will assist in providing better services for our Soldiers and Families in the Army Hawaii Community," said Regina Peirce, a Family Advocacy Prevention and Education Specialist.

The five main programs that Family Advocacy covers are the Exceptional Family Member Program; Education and Prevention Program; Victim Advocacy Program; Sexual Assault Prevention and Response Program; and the New Parents Support Program.
