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.
