It can be difficult for all members of the family during a PCS move. For military kids, the thought of moving and being the “new kid” can be overwhelming. We have created a list of resources that MCCS has available to all Marine Corps families that can help ease your child’s transition at any age. Some resources are developed to assist before you move to your next duty station. Other resources are great ways to get your child involved in their new community just after arrival. All of our resources are beneficial at any point in your tour at an installation. MCCS has broken down the available resources by age group as children's needs and resources vary.
While you may not have heard of a sponsor if you’re traveling CONUS during a PCS, a sponsor is beneficial to you no matter what installation you’re moving to. So, what will a Sponsor do for you?
Making a permanent change of station (PCS) move often requires Marines and families to forge new social connections. Try some of these strategies.
The Exceptional Family Member Program team is a great resource and support for families with PCS orders. One of the primary responsibilities of EFMP is to help families think through, plan, and access specific resources that will help to make the Permanent Change of Station (PCS) move less challenging.
