CARE Office opens to help with change June 18, 2009

IMCOM headquarters has established an office for transitioning employees to get personal advice and answers to questions that might not be addressed through the Transition web site or town hall meetings.

Called the CARE Office (Comprehensive Assistance for Realigning Employees), it is a collaboration between the IMCOM MSO, EEO, and the DA CPAC. The office is in Room 8034 on the Taylor Building 8th Floor, and you can stop in, or call or email for an appointment with a specialist best suited to address your specific issues. Signs are up in the elevator lobby and elsewhere on the 8th floor to point the way.

The mission of the CARE Office is to be a one-stop shop for assistance for those who are and those who are not relocating to Fort Sam Houston.

“We recognize that sometimes you don’t want to or can’t get answers to all of your questions via the internet or a town hall meeting,” said Chris Brandstrup, the MSO proponent for the CARE Office. “We want to be able to provide you brochures on San Antonio, refer you to job vacancies in the DC Metro area, discuss retirement options, or just help you talk through whatever is on your mind.”

The CARE Office is part of a service that IMCOM leadership has established to help employees manage the changes underway. As an option, employees with questions or issues can simply use the phone or email to get answers that might not be available elsewhere.

Chris Brandstrup is in MSO, and he can be reached at 703-602-2117. The email address will be activated Monday, 22 June.

Relocation Resources

The first wave of movers from IMCOM, FMWRC and AEC will be heading out for San Antonio in May and continuing through the year. Many others will be deciding on their future courses of action over the May and June time frame as options are spelled out and clarified.

In the interest of sharing information, we have added a Relocation category to this blog that will be dedicated largely to real estate and community issues. At first, our sources will, of necessity, be people in the real estate business and other relocation-oriented specialties, as well as resources we find on our own.

While the Army does not endorse any of these contributors, collectively they are a valuable resource and we appreciate their contributions.  Still, we hope the early movers will also get involved by chronicling their experiences and lessons learned in submissions to this blog or comments to other posts here. When we start teaching each other through this forum is when we know we’re successful.
