A New Start in the Low Country

July 27, 2012 by

For military families, moving is an inevitable fact of life. According the U.S. Army, the average family moves once every six years but this rate can vary for families who relocate according to Army needs.   As exciting as a fresh start can be, moving to a new area can be overwhelming;  however with the proper planning and research you will not only have the keys to your new home, but the key to a successful transition for the whole family.

Welcome to WaterWays Township

One of the best ways to prepare for your move is to have a plan. Creating a timeline with expectations for the family will help everyone to stay organized and avoid getting lost in all of details and things to do. Take advantage of these checklists from Military.com that cover everything from packing to getting settled in your new location.

Make a list of items that you and your family consider important and keep in mind the following: What may be most challenging for your children; engage kids in the hunt for your new home; research your new community and housing options together; check out local service and medical providers; research schooling options and look into the social aspects of the community. Local associations and committees are a great way to meet new friends!
