Give Parents a Break Program (Free Child Care)

The Air Force Aid Society (AFAS) recognizes that Air Force families are subject to unique stresses due to the nature of military life—deployments, remote tours of duty, extended working hours, etc.

Families are often separated from spouses as well as from extended family member who might otherwise offer support. In an effort to help these families, the AFAS, in cooperation with Air Force child care community, has agreed to provide funding for child care for Active Duty Air Force families under a program called “Give Parent a Break” (GPAB).

The purpose of this program is to offer eligible active duty Air Force parents a few hours break from the stresses of parenting. Families may use this time to suit their personal needs.

Who's Eligible?

  • Whose spouse is deployed, on extended TDY or a remote tour of duty
  • Member has been experiencing a family crisis such as birth of a baby, serious illness of a family member, death in the family, extended illness of a family member
  • Member has been required to work extensive extended shifts
  • Having a child with special needs

Required Forms & Deadlines
