Marine Corps Community Services
Mission Statement: The mission of the MARFORRES MCCS is to enhance quality of life and family readiness by providing Marines, Sailors, and families with resources, education, training, personal contacts, and services to manage the challenges of military service and military deployments.

Marines are renowned for their dedication to their country and their exemplary performance in tough situations. With the Marine Corps' active engagement in the Global War on Terrorism in Afghanistan, the Horn of Africa, and Iraq, we owe it to them to provide the programs and services that make their daily lives a little easier.

MCCS provides a wide range of services to help Marines do everything from developing financial responsibility, to continuing their education, to moving to their next duty station or preparing to return home after completing their obligations.
Personal & Professional Development

Personal & professional development provides programs, services and information for active duty Marines, Sailors, family members and retirees. Services range from education opportunities to childcare.

Semper Fit
Mission Statement: The primary focus of the Semper Fit Program is to provide healthy lifestyle activities and education that assist the "Commander" in preventing situations before they develop into serious problems, which negatively impact on mission readiness of our Marines, our commands, and our readiness to succeed as partners in this challenging way of life.

While the transformation of making Marines begins with the recruiter, sustaining the transformation is the responsibility of those who lead our Marines. Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) Semper Fit Programs are designed to assist our leadership in sustaining the transformation, and to be a force multiplier that helps maintain Marines as the Nation’s premier warfighters.

Semper Fit Programs are directly related to combat readiness. They serve as the main mechanism through which a variety of programs, services and activities are provided to our Marines and Sailors.

Positive lifestyle and behavioral changes should result in optimal health, an enhanced quality of life, and improved combat readiness. Semper Fit is a combination of Physical Fitness, Health Promotion, Single Marine Program (SMP), Recreational Support, and Leagues/Sports.
