Unit, Personal and Family Readiness Program

The Unit, Personal and Family Readiness Program (UPFRP) is implemented to maintain ready Marines, Sailors attached to Marine Corps units, eligible beneficiaries, and authorized contacts, and equip them with the knowledge and tools necessary to successfully meet the challenges of deployment and unit mission.

Contact the Uniformed Readiness Coordinator at 760-830-8685. Located in Building 1457, Headquarters Battalion Offices.

The program has four tenets it utilizes to support this mission:

Deployment Support. Education, training, and support to Marines and family members during deployment cycles.  As Headquarters Battalion we provide individual augments throughout the Marine Corps, and ensure that they are provided the necessary support to prepare for the hardships of a deployment.

Official Communication. Communication directly from or on behalf of the Commander distributed to the Marine and/or Authorized Contact(s), which conveys information on the unit’s status and protects operations security (OPSEC).

Readiness and Resource Support. Information and training about services, resources, and referrals supporting the personal and family readiness needs of the unit or its members.

Volunteer Management. Coordination of program volunteers.

The Family Readiness Command Team (FRCT) enhances the readiness and support of the UPFRP by reviewing the efforts in support of the four tenets and planning events for the Battalion.

The FRCT is composed of the Commanding Officer, the XO and SgtMaj who collaborate directly with the Uniformed Readiness Coordinator (URC) on personal and family readiness, the Chaplain and the Single Marine Program Representative.

The URC ensures the execution of the four tenets, coordinates with MCCS and other agencies to leverage resources in support of the UPFRP mission, and acts as the communication link between the Commander and Marines and families.
