At Home Base, we recognize that military families are very resilient. But during the past ten years, even the strongest families have been challenged by having loved ones deployed multiple times and in harm’s way for long periods of time.
Most military families in New England are part of the National Guard and Reserve. As a result, our military families do not have a large base community, and that can be isolating. In Massachusetts, many military children are the only child in their school who has a parent or another family member who is serving. Home Base provides clinical counseling for all family members throughout the deployment cycle.
