The mission of the ACS center is to facilitate the commander’s ability to provide comprehensive, coordinated, and responsive services that support readiness of Soldiers, civilian employees and their Families. ACS maximizes technology and resources, adapts to unique installation requirements, eliminates duplication in service delivery, and measures service effectiveness.

Joint Base Lewis-McChord (JBLM) Armed Forces Community Service (AFCS) provides numerous programs and resources for Service Members (all branches, including active duty, guard and reserve), their families, retirees and DoD civilians. To embrace our joint base culture as an Army-led joint base with a diverse population, we created Armed Forces Community Service which other branches might know as Army Community Service (ACS) or the Airman & Family Readiness Center (A&FRC).
