The goal of EFMP is to assist military families in managing the dual demands of a Navy career and the special needs of a family member.
An exceptional family member includes a family member enrolled in DEERS who possesses a diagnosed physical, intellectual or emotional need that requires specialized medical or educational services.
Enrollment in the EFMP program is designed to assist the sponsor with assignment to a duty station where appropriate services, necessary to support the family member(s), are available.
