Relocation assistance can provide support if you’re preparing to move or PCS. The programs and services defined below are provided by the Military and Family Support Center. In addition to the assistance program, a variety of other services may be available. Check the additional information topic to see what unique installation services are available to you.
If you are approaching a permanent change of station, or PCS, you may have questions about your upcoming move. As part of the Military and Family Support Center, the Relocation Assistance Program provides services and resources to help make this transition as smooth as possible. Below is a list of resources.
The Army Community Service’s Relocation Assistance program is not a standalone program as it is in many larger installations. There are information and referral capabilities offered.
The Fort Myer thrift shop has a number of gently used items available for purchase. Items vary throughout the year and the selection is very diverse. The thrift shop is located at 142 Forrest Circle (between the post office and the stables). Hours of operation are Tuesday-Thursday, 10 a.m.- 2:30 p.m. The thrift shop is also open the first Saturday of every month, 10 a.m.-3 p.m. While there are a number of thrift shops in the local area, all proceeds from the Fort Myer thrift shop go back into the community. For more information, call 703-527-0664.
Note: The Loan Closet is currently suspended because of Covid-19.
Service members and families wanting to borrow from the Loan Closet should bring a valid identification card and their permanent change of station orders. Those not on PCS status may borrow from the Loan Closet if there are sufficient items; however, priority is given to those who are PCSing. The Loan Closet is available from 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. Items are available on a first-come, first-served basis. All items must be returned by the due date. Extensions may be granted by the program manager on a case-by-case basis. For more information, call the ACS at 703-696-3510.
Orders are the most important document for a move. Until you have them, you do not know what you will be authorized. Be sure to read your orders as soon as you receive them. If they are not correct, make sure any changes needed are made prior to your PCS here.
If the service member is going on temporary duty assignment in advance of PCS, it is important to designate someone as a power of attorney to take care of personal business in their absence.
Services Provided by Joint Base Myer-Henderson Hall’s Relocation Readiness Program:
In-processing is done daily for finance and military personnel.

This briefing is mandatory for all service members assigned to Fort Myer, but family members are encouraged to attend. The orientation provides an overview on services available on the installation and in the area.
Re-entry briefings are offered on an individual basis to service members returning from overseas who need assistance with preparing for the adjustments that must often be made when returning from an overseas tour.
Personalized individual counseling is available to those requesting it from our office.
