What We Do

Supporting Department of the Air Force families has been a mission focus for AFA since its inception. The recent efforts by the spouses of senior Air Force and Space Force leaders have motivated AFA to provide mission-focused thought leadership and expand and strengthen support for Airmen, Guardians and their families. With a keen desire to avoid reinventing the wheel, AFA is taking a “Listen—Amplify—Connect—Build” approach.


To listen, AFA formed the F2 Task Force promoting United Forces and Families in 2022. This diverse group of 16 spouses provides direct inputs into AFA to include programmatic recommendations and needs-gap analysis.


The largest amplification to date has been the spouse integration during the 2022 Air, Space & Cyber Conference. AFA welcomed 1,000 military spouse registrants to the event and hosted four quality of life sessions. The F2 Task Force is currently exploring other options for virtual events and increased promotion.


Connection continues to be a key focus of AFA’s support to military families. This has already shown up in the form of spouse networking events and engagements. However, the real magic will happen through AFA’s chapters at the local level. Chapters are led by mission-driven volunteers who believe in our Air Force and Space Force family.


With its commitment to DAF families, AFA will build new programming on an as-needed basis where identified. For 2023, AFA is executing a pilot grant program to provide immediate quality of life improvement initiatives at installations around the world. A key focus is increased support at the local level through community partnerships and AFA chapters via grants.
