Ohana Heroes Project —The Ohana Heroes Project is looking for families to participate in a study on the effects of military deployment on families. Deployment creates changes in family roles and family functioning. Some families adapt easily to parental deployment, while other families may struggle with these changes.
To help understand what resources may be needed to support families experiencing deployment, this project examines the effects of deployment on children and non-deployed spouses. For more details, visit or email
