I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you to Miramar’s Exceptional Family Member Program. The primary goal
of EFMP is to provide service excellence and a continuum of care for Marine Corps families participating in the program.
EFMP is committed to providing resources and training opportunities to educate our fellow Marines and their families in becoming lifelong advocates for their Exceptional Family Members.
Our team takes great pride in being readily available to provide ongoing support and resources to you and your families at any given time. I realize that not all families require the same level of support. Therefore, every Exceptional Family Member will receive case management specific to their individual needs. The case workers will make quarterly contacts in efforts to establish a strong rapport and to stay informed of the EFM(s) current condition, ensure that EFMP paperwork is updated every (3) years and to assist families during PCS transition periods. In additional to quarterly contacts families will receive ongoing communication through emails, newsletters and Facebook on upcoming training opportunities and events.
We are committed to making your experience here at Miramar a pleasant one. Please know that we are here to serve you and I look forward to meeting you at the next upcoming event.
