Military-connected family members encouraged to share experiences, inspire action through 2023 Military Family Support Programming Survey
WASHINGTON (October 2, 2023) – The Military Family Advisory Network (MFAN), a national nonprofit dedicated to supporting military and veteran families, has fielded the latest iteration of its Military Family Support Programming Survey.
The 2023 Military Family Support Programming Survey, presented by Oracle Health, will be MFAN’s most comprehensive and methodologically robust research effort yet. Approved by an academic Institutional Review Board, the survey collects millions of data points on topics affecting military family life like childcare, employment, family relationships, financial readiness, food insecurity, health and well-being, housing, and military-to-civilian transition.
Since 2015, MFAN has conducted this national study every two years to capture diverse perspectives and gain rich insight into the support needs of service, members, veterans, and their families. The data collected not only shapes the narrative around military life but sets the agenda for leaders across the Armed Forces, lawmakers, advocates, and community providers.
MFAN’s research has shaped local and national policy over the years, specifically in the areas of military housing, food insecurity, and well-being. MFAN’s in-house doctoral-level researchers are able to identify macro and micro learnings allowing MFAN and its partners to triage and customize programming appropriately.
