A Guide for the Modern Military PCS

Join MFAN and our partner, Millie, as we share how to handle the unexpected and where to turn for help in your new community.


Keeping Your Back To School Cool

MFAN and our friends at Military Child Education Coalition (MCEC) and Exceptional Families of the Military (EFM) help military families navigate the transition to a new environment during PCS and back-to-school season.


PCS Prep

With PCS season in full swing, many military families face a tough decision: buy or rent? MFAN alumnae Kellie Artis (COO of Millie) and Erin Ward (CEO of HRVA Homes) provide tools, tips, and resources to help you make the best housing decision for your family.


Understanding the Effect of Military Moves

Leading up to the MFAN Solutions Summit, we decided to take a closer look at what military families were experiencing this PCS season and during previous ones. To do that, we distilled experiences from 5,546 military moves. Whether they have been in military service for 2 years or 44 years, they helped us understand everything from their finances and job prospects to their mental health and family dynamics.
