Housing Service Center (El Centro)

The Naval Air Facility El Centro Housing Services Center mission is to provide housing support for all families and unaccompanied personnel moving to or departing from the El Centro area. Our goal is to help service members, both unaccompanied or those with families, locate suitable, affordable and safe housing. Browse the links below to learn more about housing options and support services available to you in El Centro.

The Housing Service Center’s trained professionals can help you choose the right housing to meet your needs, whether in Military Family or Unaccompanied Housing or in one of El Centro’s unique neighborhoods. The Housing Service Center (HSC) maintains a current database of available off-base community rental properties for homes, apartments and town-homes. Rental properties listed with the HSC are inspected for suitability by our housing referral professionals.

If you are leaving the area we can help you with departure services to put you in contact with your new duty station and the information that will help you settle quickly at your next PCS location.
