The U.S. Army Community and Family Support Center (USACFSC) is the headquarters for morale, welfare and recreation (MWR), lodging and family programs - a $1.35 billion operation with 24x7 operations and 35,000 employees worldwide.

USACFSC supports more than 100 Army installations worldwide and operates as a loosely franchised corporation with multiple stakeholders.
