ProgramInformation

Relocation Services: Your moving experience begins well before you receive your Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders. Whether you are arriving or departing Okinawa, or acting as a sponsor to an inbound Marine or Sailor, knowing what to expect and who to contact will significantly reduce the stress of moving.   Whether it's your first time moving or acting as a sponsor or you have done it many times, Marine & Family Programs - Resources staff is here to help. Our office maintains the most current and up to date relocation-related information and processes, information on Navy and Marine Corps installations and much more!  We can help make your move to or from Okinawa as ‘Smooth' as possible.

Information and Referral: Marine and Family I & R  Specialists are available to provide individualized one-on-one assistance to assist with individual readiness and personal development. Marine and Family Programs I & R  Specialists are also available to provide assistance in locating information, resources and referrals, and coordinate unit and group training to include Personal Finance, Language and Culture, Transition, Relocation and Individual Effectiveness workshops.




Marine & Family Programs - Resources

Marine & Family Programs - Resources serves as your DoD family center for Marines and Sailors stationed on Okinawa. Our locations are staffed with specialists trained to provide information, individual assistance and/or referrals necessary to maintain the high quality of life you are accustomed to. Visit any location to speak to a specialist or attend one of many workshops offered to assist with transition, cultural adaptation and personal readiness. 

Marine & Family Programs - Resources is available to positively impact the mission readiness of Marines and commands, and prevent individual problems which detract from unit performance. Unit training is available upon request, and can be customized and coordinated with other Marine and Family Service programs to address unique challenges within the command. 

The DSTRESS Line is a USMC program for active duty, reserve, veterans and retirees, as well as their families. Callers will speak with veteran Marines, former corpsmen, or Marine Corps spouses with years of experience on 'the green side' as well as licensed behavioral health counselors who have been specifically trained in Marine Corps culture and ethos. The DSTRESS Line is an anonymous behavioral health counseling service that gives Marines, attached Sailors, and family members a place to call and speak with "one of their own." It is a place to call and talk about stress in daily life -from the common everyday stressors to post-traumatic stress. It is not a medical service. DSTRESS Line counselors won't diagnose symptoms, but they will work with callers to help with a way forward. The call lines are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.  

Calling options from Okinawa are:
1. Dial 645-7734 from any DSN phone.
2. Dial 098-970-7734 from any Local Japanese cell phone or Local Japanese land line phone.
3. Dial 1-877-476-7734 from any US based VOIP Line (Vonage, Skype, Magic Jack, etc.).
