About Us

Our History

Naval Services FamilyLine is a volunteer, non-profit organization dedicated to serving naval spouses around the world. Our network of experienced, trained volunteer spouses allows us to mentor, consult, and guide families in the Navy.

FamilyLine, formerly known as the Navy Wifeline Association, was established in 1965 by a group of Navy wives who wanted to form a channel of communication for all Navy spouses. The aim was to provide an introduction to Navy life and increase the spouses' understanding of the Navy's mission. This dedicated group established an office at the Washington Navy Yard and began publishing a quarterly newspaper. These Navy wives had the foresight to see the need for spouse and family support and provided the groundwork for what has developed into a worldwide family support network.

With the support of the Chief of Naval Operations (Family Framework Version 2.0) and Navy leadership, along with the financial support of the Navy League, Spouses Clubs worldwide, and other Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard organizations, Naval Services FamilyLine has continued to grow and flourish, now providing 11 publications and spouse mentoring courses across the globe.

Our Programs and Publications

We want to help you have positive experiences that you will treasure for a lifetime. With the right information, having a spouse in the service can be a unique and memorable time, but without the proper preparedness and resources, this journey can be challenging. To meet the challenge, we have developed publications and specialized courses that will provide spouses with a forum to dispel myths, answer questions, and alleviate fears.
