Service providers are available with support both before and after a PCS move. Learn more about how to put the military’s relocation assistance program to work for you. See below for an overview of Military and Family Support Center Relocation Assistance services. Services vary by installation, so check the “Other” section below to see what other services are available at your location.
Your Military and Family Support Center provides relocation assistance to help make PCS moves as smooth as possible. Resources include:
Army Community Service’s Relocation Readiness Program office, located in Building 402, provides assistance to relocating service members, Department of the Army civilians, their family members and retirees.
Loan Closet items are loaned out for 30 days while waiting to receive household goods. Personnel will receive their housing prior to receiving HHG, so you will need to pack linens in your luggage or mail them ahead of your arrival because the Loan Closet does not provide linens. Limited supplies of furniture are available from the Housing Furnishing Management Branch; they can provide projections for available furniture around your arrival.
Before you leave your present duty station, coordinate with the local Relocation Assistance Program at your family service center. The ACS RRP office provides assistance in every aspect of relocating. A wide range of services are offered to help you before, during and after your move.
You will receive post-move assistance shortly after your arrival. Our in-processing office will provide an easy-to-follow, step-by-step sheet of areas you need to check in with, including finance, housing, driver training and vehicle registration.
You will automatically be enrolled in the two-part Command Right Start Program:
Military and civilian personnel are required to attend both of these programs within 60 days of their arrival at Camp Zama.
Personnel who are leaving the military are also required to out-process through the Army Career and Alumni Program. Adult family members who are relocating with their sponsor should visit ACS Relocation Assistance well in advance of their permanent change of station. There is also job search preparation information for the next assignment.
The Information and Referral Program at ACS includes driving and train maps to other bases as well as points of interest.
ACS will also distribute welcome packets upon request. Weekly English as a Second Language classes and Japanese classes are offered at no charge.
