Special Projects

Ombudsman Program: An Ombudsman is a volunteer (who may be a spouse, reservist or Auxiliarist) that is designated by a Command to serve as a link between the command and families. They assist the command in its functions of providing information and related services to families regarding sources of assistance available to them, Coast Guard and command policies, and activities of interest to family members. They take confidential concerns of the families to the command. The Ombudsman is also available to help parents and other relatives of crew members. The Ombudsman is familiar with the local community and its resources.

AuxCHEF Program: The AUXCHEF (Auxiliary Chef) Program is a National Auxiliary Program designed to provide trained Auxiliarists to fill-in at Small Boat Stations or on cutters to relieve the Food Service Specialist (FS). The program allows FSs to attend training, take leave, etc. without the Station being short handed. The AUXCHEFs can also assist with VIP events, Change of Commands and other events such as picnics. AUXCHEFS can be available for a variety of time frames from one meal to several days. The AUXCHEFS do not shop for or supply food, they prepare the food the stations provide, and assist in serving and cleanup. AUXCHEFS are not authorized to handle cash. AUXCHEFS due supply that home cooked touch during the holidays and at special events.

Health Services Support Program: The Coast Guard (CG) recognizes that the CG Auxiliary is composed of many skilled volunteers, some of whom are trained, qualified, licensed or registered to perform many of the same health care activities that are performed by active duty personnel. Some Auxiliarists are willing to perform health care activities on a volunteer basis for the USCG.

Interpreter Corps Program: The US Coast Guard Auxiliary Interpreter Corps is a Division of the USCG Auxiliary International Affairs Directorate. Interpreters are members of the USCG Auxiliary and offer their linguistic skills to the US Coast Guard and other agencies of the Department of Homeland Security.
