Key Spouse

Welcome to your MFSC Key Spouse Program!

Q: What is the Key Spouse Program?


A: The U.S. Air Force Key Spouse Program (KSP) is an official Air Force Unit Family Readiness Program designed to enhance readiness, personal/family resiliency and establish a sense of Air Force community. 


Q: Who is part of the Key Spouse Program?


A: Key Spouses are commander-appointed and serve as a vital resource for both unit leadership and Air Force families. This commander program promotes partnerships with unit leadership, Key Spouses, family members, the Military & Family Support Center (MFSC) and other community and helping agencies.


Q: What’s the purpose of the Key Spouse Program?


A: The strategic vision is to increase resiliency and unit cohesion amongst military members and their families throughout the military life cycle.


Why does Key Spouse Program matter?


The military lifestyle offers unique challenges not faced by the civilian community.  Key Spouses are volunteers that help AF families navigate those challenges and ensure you’re connected to all the right resources to help.
