Multicultural Support - Relocation Assistance

 

The Army Community Service (ACS) Relocation Readiness Program offers multicultural services to assist foreign-born Spouses and Soldiers.  Let us assist with language development, cross-cultural training, and cultural mediation. 

Whether you live on Fort Carson or in one of our local communities, our goal is to help you make the most out of the time you call Colorado home.

Request Multicultural Support

In partnership with the Denver U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) field office, this service is provided free and covers various Immigration and Naturalization policies, procedures and forms.  By working hand in hand with USCIS, staff is able to effectively resolve issues and concerns. Naturalization is currently conducted at the Denver USCIS.
