Family Assistance Center Open in Rochester
The Rochester Family Assistance Center (FAC) is located at the Rochester Training and Community Center at 1715 Marion Road, Southeast in Rochester will be staffed Thursdays from 10 a.m. - 3p.m. To contact them, call 651-268-8587.
Family programs established that there was a need to expand our Family Assistance centers in Southeast Minnesota, with Rochester selected as the best fit for the new office. The FAC will start off as a part-time office with the potential to grow into a full-time office, should the need arise. All calls to the new Rochester offices will be able to speak to a Family Assistance Center Specialist 24 hours a day, as the phones will be rolled to one of our full-time staff when the office is closed.
The FAC staff provides information and referrals to local resources as well as state and federal military support programs. FAC support staff are trained professionals that understand the challenges associated with the military lifestyle. When challenges occur, you need timely and accurate information, compassion and reliable support. No matter what challenges arise, the military family can be assured that the Family Assistance Center will help with solutions. There now 11 FACs in Minnesota. When you include the Air Guard and Reserve assistance offices there are 14 offices state wide to assist military families.
