The Key Spouse Program is an official unit/family program designed to enhance readiness and establish a sense of Air Force community. 

It is a commander’s program that promotes partnerships with unit leadership, volunteer Key Spouses appointed by the commander, families, the Airman & Family Readiness Center and other community and helping agencies.  The program has been standardized across the Air Force to address the needs of all military families with special emphasis on support to families across the deployment cycle.
