Key Spouse Program
The Key Spouse Program is an official unit and family program designed to enhance readiness and establish a sense of Air Force community.  It is a commander’s program that promotes partnerships with unit leadership, volunteer Key Spouses appointed by the commander, families, the Airman & Family Readiness Center and other community and helping agencies.  The program has been standardized across the Air Force to address the needs of all military families, with special emphasis on support to families across the deployment cycle.  Contact the A&FRC to find your Key Spouse and for information on becoming a Key Spouse.

Heartlink
The purpose of the Heart Link Program is to strengthen military families and enhance mission readiness.  Appreciating that spouses play an important goal in re-enlistment decisions, therefore impacting retention, the overall program goal is to ensure that spouses are aware of their importance to the Air Force, and feel as though they are a part of the Air Force “team.”  Each base appoints a Heart Link Administrator to oversee the program, which includes orientation activities consisting of presentations, interactive games and exercises.  A program highlight is having lunch at the dining facility with the Wing Commander and tour of Satellite Operations.
