Quality of Life (QoL) issues are directly tied to military family readiness, resilience, and retention of the force, which in turn, impacts mission execution. Five & Thrive aims to improve the QoL challenges in five focus areas (Childcare, Education, Healthcare, Housing, Spouse Employment) by highlighting preventative measures, promoting best practices, fostering community partnerships, and encouraging Department of the Air Force (DAF) families to thrive.
