JSS/Family Programs

The Joint Services Support (JSS) Directorate is designed to be a one-stop center for all Washington Guard veteran and family readiness services. We oversee transition services, state family programs and a resiliency care team. The JSS manages programs that provide Washington's Warriors, veterans and family members support services that enhance their well-being as well as promote their productive military participation.

Headquartered in Building 3 on Camp Murray, with locations at armories across the state, the JSS can provide assistance no matter where you’re located in Washington state.
