Family Advocacy Program (FAP) is a multi-disciplinary program designed to address child abuse and domestic violence within the Marine Corps community on Okinawa. FAP provides clinical assessment, treatment and referral services to individuals, couples and families who have experienced or who may be at risk of Domestic Violence and Child Abuse.

What is Domestic Abuse?

Domestic abuse can be defined as a pattern of behavior in any relationship that is used to gain or maintain power and control over an intimate partner.

What is Child Abuse?

Child abuse is the physical or sexual abuse, emotional maltreatment or neglect of an unmarried person under 18 years old.

How We Can Help

The Family Advocacy Program provides a variety of interventions and treatment services to meet the needs of individual families. FAP provides counseling, clinical case management, treatment groups, and refers families to military and civilian resources as appropriate.

Restricted Reporting Options

Restricted reporting allows an adult victim of intimate partner abuse to disclose the details of his or her abuse to specifically identified individuals and receive medical treatment, victim advocacy services and counseling without requiring that notice be provided to the victim’s or alleged offender’s commander or law enforcement.

Victims of intimate partner abuse who desire restricted reporting under this policy must report the abuse to one of the following specified individuals:

  • A victim advocate
  • A victim advocate supervisor
  • FAP counselor

Unrestricted Reporting Options

Victims of intimate partner abuse who want to pursue an official investigation of an incident should use current reporting channels, e.g., chain of command, Family Advocacy Program (FAP), or law enforcement. Upon notification of a reported domestic abuse incident, victim advocacy services and FAP clinical services will be offered to the victim.
