The Family Advocacy Program (FAP) is a multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary resource that is designed to address child abuse and domestic abuse within the Marine Corps community through prevention, intervention, and treatment. For immediate assistance, the National Domestic Violence Hotline (1-800-799-7233) provides lifesaving tools and support to enable victims to find safety and live lives free of abuse.

The Family Advocacy Program (FAP) assists commanders, and service members and their families by providing prevention services aimed at stress reduction, improved marital communications and parenting skills. FAP also offers clinical counseling for couples and families who have conditions that increase the risk for abuse. When intimate partner violence or child abuse has already occurred, FAP offers victim advocate services to provide support for victims of abuse, and interventions to help reduce the risk for repeated incidents.
