The Navy Family Ombudsman Program is designed to provide better and faster communication between Navy families and Navy officials. Navy commands and all deploying units, including reserves have an Ombudsman. Ombudsmen are a liaison that act as an information link between Commanding Officers and families. Ombudsmen reach out to individual families with friendship, information, problem solving and a helping hand. An Ombudsman is not a mediator and does not get involved in chain-of-command matters.
