Your Military and Family Support Center provides relocation assistance to help make PCS moves as smooth as possible. Resources include:
Newcomer's Right Start briefings are traditionally held on the third Wednesday of each month, from 7:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Newly-arrived personnel should in-process with their new unit, where they will be scheduled to attend an upcoming Newcomer Orientation (Right Start) at the Heritage Club. It is mandatory that service members attend Right Start within 30 to 60 days of arriving at Robins Air Force Base. Spouses are highly encouraged to attend.
The Airman and Family Readiness Center is the focal point for relocation assistance. The A&FRC staff also collaborates and coordinates with other federal, state and civilian agencies that provide relocation and other assistance services. The program also offers numerous pamphlets, handouts, seminars and one-on-one consultations to assist with the relocation process.
Relocation is a challenge; it's never easy to leave behind family and friends. The key to success is using the Relocation Assistance Program. The RAP office is equipped to answer your questions or refer you to the appropriate agency. Active-duty military will be scheduled by the unit command support staff upon in-processing. Newcomer Orientation (Right Start) is a mandatory briefing for active duty members. Spouses are highly encouraged to attend. Department of Defense civilians will be given instructions from the Civilian Personnel Office to attend the Newcomer’s briefing.
Active-duty Air Force members may utilize the Child Care for PCS Program, sponsored by the Air Force Aid Society. This program provides parents the opportunity to have their children cared for while they are getting ready to leave their current base or arriving at a new base; while packing, unpacking, out-processing, in-processing, house hunting, attending briefings, etc. Twenty hours of care per child is paid for by the Air Force Aid Society for all active-duty Air Force members. Certificates are issued by the A&FRC to Air Force members or spouses on PCS orders and may be used only at the base where issued. Certificates are good for child care within 60 days of PCSing. Child care is authorized at both departure base and new base, if program is available. Child care will be provided through licensed Family Child Care homes.
