Armed Forces Services Corporation’s legacy goes back to 1879 with the formation of a nonprofit organization established to care for surviving spouses from The Battle of Little Big Horn. In June 2000, AFSC was spun-off from the organization and was formed as a Virginia registered Corporation, owned by a new Board of service-disabled veterans. AFSC brought with it our reputation for expert human services delivered by selfless people. We operate as a “double bottom-line” company with both business and humanitarian goals. And when in conflict-every employee knows that our mission goals come before our business goals. Our “mission before business” culture allows us to attract a special breed of selfless staff- providing the government fast, hardworking people.
Today we provide management consulting and program delivery to many of the most vital government programs serving the military community. Our teams span from focused strategic planning engagements to very large programs focused on operational services such as adjudication support and broader case management functions. AFSC has deep experience in the full spectrum of quality-of-life programs serving the military life-cycle- including healthcare, resiliency, suicides, family strength, education, employment and financial/legal support. AFSC’s expertise has been recognized by several White Houses, Congress and throughout DoD and VA. AFSC also supports many of the nation’s largest military nonprofits- contributing thousands of hours of pro bono consulting back into to the nonprofit sector from which we sprang.
AFSC/Magellan Federal's headquartered in Arlington, VA. Our employees are spread across 40 States, and several countries. Our workforce is 1/3 veterans, 1/3 military families, and 1/3 civilians. In addition to our own staff, we manage a smaller team of a few hundred subcontractors. In today’s era of hyper-specialization, we often build teams including other expert partners.
On July 1, 2016, Magellan Healthcare, Inc., acquired ownership of AFSC. AFSC will continue as a wholly owned subsidiary of Magellan and will continue as a Virginia-registered C-Corporation. The combined assets of Magellan Healthcare and AFSC will allow the organization to do more for the government and more for the people our programs serve. This blending creates a market leader with over 3,000 workers dedicated to providing high-impact, innovative, and cost effective solutions to the nation's most demanding human needs.
AFSC’s mission is to enhance the lives of Warriors, Veterans and their Families through expertise, innovation and effort.
