Navy Chaplains: Support for Sailors and Families in Uncertain Times

Predictability and Controllability are Principles of Stress Control and Resilience.  We may not know what to expect in these uncertain times, but we can rely on the support of our Navy Chaplains.

In these times of economic uncertainty so much can seem out of our control. From delayed deployments, to extended time at sea, to overseas orders on indefinite hold, to potential furloughs which can impact your child’s schooling and day care routine, it’s important to know who you can count on for support.

Chaplains offer a message of hope to you and your families, and we remain committed to supporting you with dignity, respect, and compassion. We are grateful for the trust you give us – and we regard it as sacred.

When you feel you have nowhere to turn during a personal crisis, or when you’re concerned about command involvement or an impact on your career– you are not alone.

Your chaplain is available 24/7 to provide you confidential support and a safe place to talk, without fear or reservation. Chaplains serve as your advocate to help you get the support you need to overcome the challenges we all face together. 

I encourage you to reach out to your command chaplain today. Don’t know who your nearest chaplain is? Not near a Navy or Marine Corps installation? Call Navy 311 to request chaplain support in your area: 1-855-NAVY-311.
