LOS ANGELES AIR FORCE BASE -- The Airman & Family Readiness Center hosted its first open house to showcase the various services available, April 11.
The upgraded facility offered games for attendees to play ,which helped them meet the staff and discover the wide variety of information and programs offered. Approximately 50 people visited the open house and enjoyed freshly popped popcorn from the A&FRC's popcorn stand as well as an array of other treats.
The mission of the A&FRC is to "take care of the people so they can take care of the mission." Some of the programs and information available include personal financial management, transition assistance, zero-percent interest loans and grants through the Air Force Aid Society, member and family readiness, support for families of deployed members, relocation assistance, school information, spouse employment, family life education, volunteer appreciation, and a full spectrum of workshops.
The A&FRC also has six computers available to customers. Since these computers aren't connected to the Los Angeles Air Force Base network, they are a great resource for people needing to work on a resume, check their off-base e-mail or catch up on sports scores. Meanwhile, children can enjoy entertaining themselves at the A&FRC's educational play area.
A&FRC services are available to active duty, dependents, retirees, members of the guard and reserve, as well as LAAFB civilians.
To find out more about the A&FRC, visit Bldg. 272, Room C1-208 or call 310-653-5428. Individuals can also stop by one of the display centers located in Bldgs. 270, 271, 272, the Commissary and the Base Exchange to pick up a monthly calendar of events and workshops.
