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.

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 Military & Family Readiness Center at Lackland AFB has a number of services to assist Airmen and their family members with acclimating to the base and community. One of the more challenging aspects of this assignment is the large size of the base and moving to the seventh largest city in the US. The staff is available to assist with all aspects of settling in, whether it is simply an explanation of the layout of the city and the installation, choosing which areas to live, or where to start looking for employment. If you did not receive a welcome package, we will prepare one for you when you stop by our building.
Lackland Air Force Base is commonly known as the "Gateway to the Air Force" because all enlisted members, whether active-duty, Guard or Reserve, begin their careers here at Basic Military Training. Because of this unique mission, the base receives thousands of requests from individuals and small groups for tours each year. Lackland is no longer an open installation, so all guests must be sponsored by someone with a valid military ID card. The Lackland Public Affairs Office can occasionally sponsor groups on the base. Contact the office at 210-671-2907. For further information visit the Lackland AFB homepage.
English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) is not offered on the installation. There are numerous resources in the community. Please contact the A&FRC for a list of the possibilities.
The Randolph Relocation Assistance Center has an array of programs, services and resources available to you and your family. Listed below is only a sample of what we have to offer.
For additional information about the San Antonio area, please refer to the San Antonio Guide to Relocation website. It is a Chamber of Commerce guide to the city and the areas around it, including Randolph AFB.
Fort Sam Houston
The Military & Family Readiness Center Relocation Readiness Program (RRP) is the first point of contact for relocation information and assistance. You can get up to date information about your new community before you move, learn how to prepare for your move, get help in planning your moving costs, check out the job market and learn new skills to reduce the stress of moving. When planning for your relocation, please have in mind that Fort Sam Houston, Lackland and Randolph are not joint in ONE installation, we are still individual installations about 16 to 18 miles apart. The most common mistake will be to rent a house close to one base and be assigned in another resulting unnecessary travel every day. If you are relocating to JBSA-Fort Sam Houston please call the Relocation Readiness Program at 210-221-1428/2705 or visit the Fort Sam Houston homepage.
Separation/retirement procedures for the military are handled by the Transition Services Office. For information and time-line guidance, please call 210-221-0936.
One of the reasons you may be anxious to visit or live in San Antonio may be for the many attractions for which the city is known. You will be able to explore the historical Alamo, the peaceful Riverwalk, and our rich melting pot of cultural influences. But it is the caring spirit of the people here that makes San Antonio a great place to live. San Antonians of all ages, races, religions and ethnic backgrounds are committed to caring for their fellow man. One of the simplest ways to assist is linking the individual in need to the appropriate agency or service that will eliminate or alleviate that need. Please call the following agency for assistance: United Way at 210-227-4357 or log into the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County website they will refer you to multiple agencies around San Antonio.
