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:
This section provides you with information, resources and programs to assist you in each aspect of your move to Edwards Air Force Base to make it a smoother process. Knowing where to go, whom to contact and when to do so assists greatly in planning and executing the move and settling in more quickly. The Airman and Family Readiness Center at your losing base is prepared to assist you with a variety of programs and services from spouse employment to housing information, even moving with kids. You may also contact the Edwards Air Force Base A&FRC prior to your move for assistance.
Upon arrival, active-duty military and newly hired Department of Defense civilians must attend a Newcomer’s Orientation where they will meet base leaders, learn about the mission of the Edwards Air Force Base resources and mandatory training. The installation Newcomer's Orientation is held the first Thursday of every month. Spouses are invited to attend with the active-duty member. Spouses can attend a break out session during newcomer's to meet other spouses. Child Care is provided with AF Aid. Contact the AFRC to obtain a voucher for 20 hours of free child care through Family Child Care.
Because your household goods are likely to arrive after you do, there is a Loan Closet maintained by family services volunteers especially for incoming newcomers including active duty or civilian employees. These dish sets and infant equipment really can come in handy while awaiting your household goods. A copy of your orders is required.
Child Care for PCS Program
When you arrive, check with the A&FRC to see if you qualify for the 20 hours of free child care provided by the Air Force Aid Society. Within 60 days of arrival, Air Force active-duty newcomers may be eligible for 20 hours of child care in a licensed base family child care home. Bring a copy of your PCS orders to the A&FRC to receive the Child Care for PCS voucher.
A referral from the A&FRC is required.
