In light of recent controversy (that I will not get into), I want to shed some light on the many resources out there for members and their families in times of need. I imagine that this list is far from comprehensive, but it's a start.:
Ombudsmen are our friends. If your unit doesn’t have an Ombudsman, you have some other choices of folks to reach out to: the Command Chief, the Chaplain, EAP and/or other spouses.
Work Life exists for a reason. There are points of contact for various offices. POC list
Command Master Chiefs (aka CEA). You can contact your local CMC here: Extensive List (Reserves included).
Mutual Assistance. To assist those in financial need.
Child Care Subsidy Program. To assist those with low-moderate incomes in meeting the high costs of child care.
Family Readiness Guide. Information from 2001 USCG Reserve Magazine concerning readiness.
Be informed. Be proactive. Be smart.
