Soldiers at Fort Riley, Kansas have plenty of opportunities to enjoy morale, welfare and recreation activities. These opportunities are intended to improve the well-being of service members and increase their overall quality of life. Everything from unique programs to special events is offered by the Fort Riley MWR office.
Relocation readiness is one of the services that can be beneficial to military families that are new to Fort Riley. Those who have a family member with special needs can take advantage of the Exceptional Family Member Program. There are also programs designed to help soldiers who are separating from military service find employment, and there are a number of programs designed for financial and deployment readiness as well.
The Child, Youth and School Services agency provides opportunities for teens and children. Child development centers on post provide child care services for preschool aged children, and there are a number of family child care centers that provide care for children up to age 12.
