Who we are

We are trained volunteers, chosen by the Commanding Officer, on call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to support the families of service members assigned to NMCP, with an emphasis on serving the needs of families of deployed sailors. We are spouses of active duty members and understand firsthand the stresses of military life. We serve as official liaisons between the command and the families of NMCP staff. The ombudsmen assist the CO in maintaining the morale and welfare of NMCP's active duty staff members and its families.

We act as advocates for families of active duty service members. We help disseminate accurate information regarding command policies, services available and deployments. We are a confidential point of contact for families and refer them to the appropriate agency for questions, concerns, help, or intervention.

What We Can Do For You

You can discuss your issues with us in confidence. We have promised to treat your concerns in a confidential and professional manner. We also make sure you are informed about the services and opportunities available to you. If we don't know the answer to your question, we will connect you with a resource that does. We are not trained counselors or social workers, but we are caring members of this community that will do our best to help you solve your problems, get needed assistance, or just stand with you during the hard times.
