Parents’ Night/Day Out

Give Parents a Break

General Information: The Air Force Aid Society (AFAS) recognizes that Air Force families are subject to unique stresses due to the nature of military life—deployments, remote tours of duty, extended working hours, etc.Families are often separated from spouses as well as from extended family members who might otherwise offer support. In an effort to help these families, the AFAS, in cooperation with Air Force child care community, has agreed to provide funding for child care for Active Duty Air Force families under a program called “Give Parent a Break” (GPAB).

The purpose of this program is to offer eligible active duty Air Force parents a break from the stresses of parenting. Families may use this time to suit their personal needs.

EligibilityEligibility - Active Duty Air Force Families where a parent is feeling stress due to unique circumstances such as:
  • Whose spouse is deployed, on extended TDY or a remote tour of duty
