The Fort Irwin Relocation Assistance Program
The Relocation Readiness Program provides information, guidance and assistance to help minimize the impact on families during PCS and ETS moves; or soldier unaccompanied tours. The major elements of the RRP are pre-move and post-move assistance, also providing services and support to waiting families on and around the installation when the sponsor is overseas or on an unaccompanied tour.

Regardless of your current situation, newcomers to Ft. Irwin or if you're preparing to depart Ft. Irwin, programs and services provided by Army Community Services (ACS) are designed to help you and your family succeed. To access these services you are one e-mail away. The chart below outlines what services are offered under each program. Indicate your needs in the form below by selecting the applicable programs and a staff member will get back to you as soon as possible.

The international spouses group

Sharing culture is a win/win for everyone and our Ft. Irwin's Culture Exchange Group is sure to educate and entertain all participants. You (regardless of culture or country of origin) are invited to join us on the last Tuesday each month beginning January,10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.. Ice Breaker, discussions, Guest Speakers, recipes exchange, and new friendships. Bring you favorite snack from your home country and join us at Sleepy Hollow Community Center, 1100 a.m.-1:00 p.m..

Sponsorship training

We provide bi-monthly classroom training for our Unit Sponsors. Ft. Irwin sponsors are often the first contact a newcomer has to Ft. Irwin. It is imperative that they are knowledgeable about Ft. Irwin and the local community. We only have one chance to make that first impression and we are counting on Sponsors to make it a good one. We will cover Sponsorship Program and Duties, E-Road Trip of Barstow and Community as well as areas of interest within a day's drive.

Hearts Apart Bingo Bowl

Is your spouse deployed, on remote tour, or extended TDY? Join the ACS and others who are in your same situation for our monthly Hearts Apart Bowl. Bowling is free and the friendship and camaraderie are warm and heartfelt. Good bowler, bad bowler, it does not matter; please see our calendar flyer for the dates and times at the Strike Zone.

English as a second language

We offer an eight week basic ESL class that meets every Monday. We offer participants a choice of sessions – morning 9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. or an evening session from 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m.. Morning classes are held in bldg 1317, Rm 7 and evening classes are held in the AG Replacement Bldg 109, Rm 136.

Lending closet

Newcomers within the first 60-days of arrival are eligible to check-out items from the RRP Lending Closet. E.g., EZ Beds (air mattress) cots, Cookware, Flatware and Kitchen utensils, bake ware, crock pots, toasters, coffee pots, irons, ironing boards, and more. Linens are not available so please make arrangements to either bring them with you or mail them ahead of your arrival.

I need stuff...I have stuff...

This program offers those who HAVE an opportunity to connect to those in NEED. We offer an opportunity for Soldier families to register what they have to donate or what they need with the Relocation Assistance Program. We do not accept the donated items as we do not have storage space.
It is NTC policy that all arriving soldiers in the ranks of 06 and below will have an assigned Sponsor. Please request a Ft. Irwin sponsor through your losing installation.
