The SFPO is tasked with budgetary, policy and procedure as well as administrative duties to appropriately oversee all aspects of the New York National Guard Family Programs. It is the SFPO’s duty and responsibility to ensure that the successful delivery of services is implemented in the most efficient and effective manor, so that service members, as well as their loved ones, obtain the fullest support throughout their service member’s career.
