Give Parents a Break Program


Is your spouse deployed?? Is your family experiencing unique stressors?? Let us help! Give Parents A Break (GPAB) is funded by the Air Force Aid Society and sponsored by the 6 Force Support Squadron to support Active Duty Air Force members, assigned to MacDill Air Force Base and tenant organizations by providing 4 hours of free childcare
at CDC #3 each month.

Families must meet specific qualifying needs and obtain a Certificate of Eligibility/Referral from the Military & Family Readiness Center. All CDC enrollment requirements must be met prior to reservations for care being accepted and reservations must be made at least one week prior to the date of the GPAB session.


For additional information on this program,
please call CDC #3 at 828-0195.

To obtain a GPAB Certificate of Eligibility/Referral,
please call the Military & Family Readiness Center at
828-0145, ext 5.

Not Active Duty Air Force?? No worries! As long as you are Active Duty and meet all eligibility requirements, we may still be able to support your family as well!
