Military Partners and Families Coalition
Military Partners and Families Coalition (MPFC) is a private non-profit, non-partisan organization based in Washington, D.C. It was founded in 2011 by a group of partners of active duty U.S. Armed Forces servicemembers stationed in the U.S. and overseas . MPFC provides support, resources, education and advocacy for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender military partners and their families.
We seek to support and empower LGBT partners and families of the United states Armed Forces servicemembers. We believe that a well-cared for military family leads to a more effective servicemember.
