Military service can bring unique challenges to raising a family.

The Military Families and Veterans Prevention Program (MFVPP) is a program designed with that in mind. It aims to strengthen and support military and veteran families who have served our country and the local community. It is our promise to serve any active duty personnel of any branch of service; National Guard, Reserve, Veteran, Military retiree and their dependents who have a child 0-17 years of age, including expectant mothers. All services and screenings with MVFPP are completely confidential. The MVFPP uses the following evidence-based and promising practice programs to meet the needs of military families in El Paso County and on Ft. Bliss.

Systematic Training for Effective Parenting (STEP)

This program is designed to:

  • Increase awareness about family dynamics, behaviors, and family functioning
  • Provide concrete alternatives and effective methods of discipline
  • Increase social support
  • Increase knowledge of child development
  • Increase nurturing and attachment

 Wraparound Case Management

Wraparound is a planning approach that is team-based, intensive, and individualized. It focuses on the strengths, needs, and culture of the family as identified by the family. The core of Wraparound services is to provide problem solving skills, coping skills, and self-efficacy for children and their families.

Big Brothers Big Sisters

MVFPP is partnered with Big Brothers Big Sister of El Paso. Simple friendships between a mentor and a child can have a lifelong impact and can offer stability for children; especially when families experience multiple transitions. Mentoring is proven to help kids stay in school, off drugs, and away from gangs. As a part of this program you can enroll a Little or be a Big! Please contact 915-544-4203 for more information.


The MFVPP works collaboratively with other departments within the CCC to ensure all families may receive all the benefits each program has to offer, including respite care in emergency situations.

Our team looks forward to meeting military members and their families. If you have any questions about the MFVPP program please contact us at 915-562-7955
