General Information
Description of ServiceAir Force Aid Society recognized the need to expand its charter to meet the emerging needs of the Air Force. They determined the most effective way to help with these new challenges is through targeted community programs which enhance Airman/family welfare and send a strong message that the Society understands today’s stresses.

Programs include:
  • Bundles for Babies - classes and layette,
  • Car Care Because We Care Program - preventive vehicle maintenance that includes oil/filter change, lubrication, and vehicle safety checks and additional repairs or services identified by the mechanic as urgent,

  • Phone Home Program - provides prepaid calling cards for deployed Air Force members, including single and married service members,
  • Spouse Employment Program - provides entry-level job training to active duty Air Force spouses with the goal being immediate, viable employment,
  • Spouse Orientation Program - activities consisting of presentations form base agencies, interactive games and exercises that should, by the end of the day, leave spouses feeling they are an important and respected part of the Air Force team,
