DVIDS – News – Army Community Service is committed to being ready and resilient

DETROIT ARSENAL, Mich .– For the past two years, Army community service professionals from Detroit Arsenal have focused their efforts on improving the readiness and resilience of Soldiers, Army civilians and their families through the New Year, New You program.

New Year, New You is a collaboration between Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation, Commander’s Readiness and Resiliency Council, Army Substance Abuse, Sexual Harassment / Assault Response and Prevention, US Army Tank-automotive and Armaments Command Headquarters and Headquarters Compagnie and Military One Source.

According to Pandora Brown, ACS Family Advocacy Program Manager, the goal of “New Year, New You” is prevention and education, which are part of FAP’s overall mission.

“When our troops and their families are healthy, happy and resilient, the soldier or civilian can focus on the mission at hand,” Brown said.

The program addresses the concept of “whole person”, to include mind, body and spirit. If Brown’s team is unable to provide information on any topic, they refer the person to local organizations that can help.

Brown acknowledges that over the past two years since the program began, families have been subjected to unique challenges that impact their lives. ACS has attempted to adapt to these challenges by offering the “New Year, New You” classes virtually so that individuals can stay safe during the pandemic and stay connected.

“We are focused on providing tools to military professionals that will help them face these adversities,” said Brown.

“We have also taken steps to support the health and safety of the Arsenal workforce and their families to help them overcome personal and work-related stresses and maintain their mental and physical health. “

Throughout the month of January, New Year, New You classes will focus on children. Detroit Arsenal teammates interested in one of the New Year, New You workshops can register on TED.
