Magellan Federal said it will provide advocacy services for victims of domestic abuse as well as support for new parents as part of the Family Advocacy Support Services contract.

The FASS contract, which has a one-year base period plus three one-year options, covers various familial support services such as home visitation, 24/7 victim response and hands-on education. 

Work will also include case management and accompaniment for court hearings and other legal appointments.

Oscar Montes, CEO of Magellan Federal, said the company has deep experience in behavioral health and population management that will help the Army in efforts to improve the quality of life for soldiers and their families while boosting combat readiness.

Since 2012, Magellan Federal has supported the Army’s Domestic Abuse Victim Advocacy and New Parent Support programs which were eventually consolidated into the FASS program.

The Arlington, Va.-based contractor offers behavioral health, complex population management, human performance and specialty medical management support to military installations worldwide.
