Military Families Learning Network

Are you a military family, service member or community part, who is looking for new ways to support military families? If so, the Military Families Learning Network (MFLN) is an online community that offers a variety of free professional development opportunities. Each year the MFLN holds the Military Family Readiness Academy, which includes a series of sessions around a certain topic.

This year, the Military Family Readiness Academy will offer a series titled, Disaster and Hazard Readiness in Action. The sessions in this series will dive into disaster and hazard response, particularly in the face of a pandemic. Participants can choose from a range of sessions that will offer guidance in areas such as caregiving, children and family needs, nutrition, and finances.
