Stowers is very excited to offer the Military Family Life Consultant (MFLC) program, with its flexibility and strict confidentiality at no cost to you. If you have questions about this support resource, please call:706-544-2312
Because military families face unique challenges, especially during this time of war, the Department of Defense provides professional, licensed consultants who offer non-medical behavioral consultation to Service members and their families, children, and the staff of Stowers Elementary School.
