Installation Specific Information
The Army Community Service (ACS) Relocation Readiness Program (RRP) office is here to help you and your family adjust to Fort Leavenworth and then prepare you for your PCS when its time to leave. The intent of RRP is to minimize the negative effects of frequent relocation on readiness and retention as well as on service members and their families. Experience has shown that if a young family has a successful first move, later moves will be positive as well. No matter how well you planned, emergencies do happen.We strive to provide you with coordination of base relocation activities, information and services. The RRP office is available to help you avoid some of the many problems you may have to deal with during your move. We can offer help with information on your next assignment to include financial entitlements, programs for Special Needs Families, housing, schools, medical and dental services, employment for spouses and much more. What should you do in case of emergency while you are traveling? First, make sure to hand carry important documents i.e. marriage and birth certificates, passports, immunization records, property and automobile titles and insurance information, citizen papers if any, copies of PCS orders, savings and checking account numbers, household goods documents and medical records are just a few of the many important items to have with you not in storage.The American Red Cross is always available for emergency aid where ever you might be.
