HANSCOM AIR FORCE BASE, Mass. – The Airman and Family Readiness Center here has reopened for in-person services beginning June 14.

Hours include Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The Discovery Center computer lab will be available for use during regular business hours and the Loan Locker will be open from 9 a.m. to noon.

“We’re excited to open our doors and bring the community back in,” said Beth Campbell, Hanscom’s A&FRC flight chief.

Campbell said the majority of classes will remain virtual throughout June, but her team expects to begin offering in-person courses and briefings later this summer with an option to attend virtually.

“Just because we’re back in-person doesn’t mean our virtual services will go away,” she said. “We’re hoping to move toward an in-person and virtual hybrid model so we can continue to reach geographically separated units.”

Monthly events hosted by the A&FRC, such as Hearts Apart and Exceptional Family Member Program functions, are also slated to resume in-person later this summer. June Hearts Apart and EFMP events will remain virtual.

To inquire about services or schedules, A&FRC officials recommend contacting the center prior to arrival.

“Our staff is currently working on a rotating telework schedule, so I would recommend making an appointment,” said Campbell. 

Individuals can make appointments by emailing 66.fss.fsfr.cmb@us.af.mil.

“Our team is looking forward to getting back out there and serving our Hanscom and New England communities,” said Campbell.
