"Bringing Soldiers and Services Together"
Community Information & Referral is the key source of integrated information that brings Soldiers and services together every day with ease and compassion to meet the vital needs of all Soldiers, Department of Army Civilians, Retiree’s and their Families. Our vision is for all people to have easy access to information and services provided in our Community.
Information and Referral serves as the central distribution point for ACS information, programs, and services. Upcoming events and activities are distributed through the information and referral program. Individual and Family assessments are conducted to ensure appropriate assistance or referrals are provided. In addition, we maintain an extensive resource file of local public, private and voluntary agencies and organizations to assist individuals and Families with getting the support they need.
