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 Relocation Assistance Office is located at Building 126. You can call the office at 760-577-6675.
Relocation assistance is designed to assist military personnel and Department of Defense personnel and their families who are relocating to a new duty station, being deployed or separating or retiring from service. Pre-departure information is provided about the new duty station and how to request a sponsor if one was not assigned. Considering the small population of Marine Corps Logistics Base Barstow, the Relocation Assistance Office provides personalized settling-in services for new Marines and their dependents on an individual basis as the service member checks into Information, Referral and Relocation.
Relocation Assistance has a Lending Locker available to check out household items for temporary use until household goods arrive.
Relocation Assistance at MCLB Barstow is here to provide support, information and resources needed for a successful move. We educate military families on how to be proactive while preparing for a move. We are unique here at MCLB because of the small population we serve. We are able to spend more time with our patrons in contrast with other installations with larger populations.
Moving with a family can be overwhelming. Add to that dealing with a special needs family member and you've now doubled or tripled the difficulty. Children can be difficult during these stressful times, regardless of their age. Allow us to help you get started and develop a plan that suits you and your family. Our staff is personable, friendly and willing to help you achieve your moving goals and deal with any emotional situations that may occur. Spouses are welcome to attend all classes and workshops, and they may stop by Building 126 whenever they need assistance.
Welcome aboard and pre-departure classes (the Permanent Change of Station and Check-Out workshops) are available on an individual or quarterly basis. These classes equip the service member and spouse with the essential tools needed to overcome and adapt to any situation. Classes are interactive and include discussion based on the service member's individual circumstances. Demonstrations of official DOD websites are provided to show how to obtain all necessary information needed during the moving process, including emergency situations.
If your household goods are still in transit, come by and check out a hospitality kit from the Loan Locker. They are free of charge and equipped with basic kitchenware such as pots, pans, dishes and utensils. We also have queen-size air mattresses, children's cots, high chairs, microwaves, tables, chairs and vacuums.
When you arrive to check in with Relocation Assistance, you will be greeted with a complimentary welcome basket filled with a variety of household essentials. We encourage service members and spouses to bring up their personal hardships and difficulties so that they may be addressed and consulted with the appropriate program manager. These hardships can range from financial problems and wanting to connect with other families to helping a spouse seek employment or marital issues. Whatever it is, we can help guide you to the resources you need.
