We handle the toughest and most vital human services– including direct support of surviving families and wounded warriors, suicide prevention and disability-rating appeals.

Our work environment is engaging, mission driven and committed to making a difference for our warriors and their families. We are results-oriented, hardworking and we value teamwork and mutual respect. We are known for taking the hardest jobs, and hiring the hardest working people. As a result, we have built AFSC into the most powerful company driving improvements for survivors, wounded, and the broader military community.

As a “double bottom-line” company, AFSC’s original Board of retired officers tracks both financial performance and mission impact. Every AFSC employee is hired and managed with a clear understanding of our mission focus, and our related promise to do “more”.

With no Business Development staff, our unparalleled growth and breadth of healthcare/human service contracts is a tribute to government clients with a true passion for improving lives with the military community. Our clients know they can trust they’ll always get the thorough processes/systems needed to keep government programs viable and “safe”, but they will also get a team committed to working harder, faster and more creatively to improve lives. From the first discussion as a job candidate, through orientation, training, assessments and compensation, every AFSC employee understands our commitment to AFSC’s legacy, and our related obligation to deliver more.
