The purpose of ACS-Outreach is to enhance readiness and retention by helping soldiers and families develop a stronger sense of self-reliance and belonging in the military community. Outreach targets those families who have the greatest level of need, but are least likely to seek out and take advantage of services until they have reached a state of crisis. Outreach focuses on three main areas: education and prevention, direct services and organizing support networks to encourage self help and cultivate a sense of ownership within the military community.

The Department of Defense (DoD) remains committed to eliminating sexual assault from the ranks of the military. Sexual Assault is a crime. It inflicts incalculable harm on victims and their Families; it tears at the very fabric of civilians and military communities; and it destroys trust among individuals and faith in our institutions. The DoD has made significant progress in combating sexual assault by introducing a comprehensive sexual assault prevention and response policy and implementing it across the Military Service. Stand Up Against Sexual Assault and Child Abuse... Make A Difference! For more information, call Fort Detrick's Sexual Assault Response Coordinator at 301-619-3050/2408.
