Your Military and Family Support Center provides relocation assistance to help make PCS moves as smooth as possible. Resources include:
Army Community Service (ACS), which is located in the Stilwell Community Center, Building 4260, on Ord Military Community (OMC), offers a full range of relocation assistance services, including a complete Loan Closet. A Newcomers Briefing is held for Service Members, Family Members and Department of the Army Civilians every Tuesday at Tin Barn starting at 0740. You can contact the ACS Relocation manager at 831-242-6890 or DSN 768-6890.
ACS is located on the OMC in the General Stilwell Community Center, Building 4260, on the corner of General Moore and Gigling roads. All new families should in-process with ACS as soon as they arrive. Welcome Packets, which contains information about the installation and agencies and services and commonly used phone numbers, are available for everyone. ACS also maintains a Loan Closet with pots and pans, folding chairs and tables, dishes and various electrical kitchen appliances. There are, however, no linens available.
Soldiers who have just finished their basic combat training, and who are reporting to the Defense Language Institute as their first long-term duty assignment, need to be aware that they are still in the initial entry training process. They will go into Phase IV of their IET. This means that, for their first four weeks here at the Presidio, they will be restricted to post, living in the barracks and not allowed to wear civilian clothes or operate a privately owned vehicle, during that time. This can significantly complicate settling a family into government-provided quarters. Married soldiers who are coming to the Presidio directly from basic training are strongly encouraged to arrange for the movement of their family members here after, rather than during or before, their first four weeks here at DLI.
Everyone coming to the Presidio with families should be aware that the wait for military family housing can be up to 90 days, and that civilian housing in the Monterey environs is expensive and scarce. The best decision is to postpone moving families to this area until housing for them has been secured.
