Call 1-800-424-2246 today and learn about NACCRRA’s Navy Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) Respite Care and how your family can receive this care.

Who is an Exceptional Family Member? What is the EFMP? What is Category IV or V?

  • An Exceptional Family Member (EFM) is an authorized DEERS eligible family member who possesses a physical, emotional, developmental or educational disability, or condition requiring special medical, mental health, or educational services.
  • The Exceptional Family Member Program (EFMP) can assist Navy families inmanaging the dual demands of a Navy career and the special needs of their child.
  • EFM category IV and V refers to an exceptional family member whose medical condition requires assignment near major medical facilities INCONUS, or whose needs are complex and specialized requiring continuity of care.

How do I know if I am eligible?

  • The family is enrolled in the Navy’s EFMP.
  • The EFM child is between the ages of birth to 18 years, and is category IV or V.
  • You are stationed in Norfolk, VA

There are no income restrictions; the service is free to eligible Navy families.
