Picerne Military Housing
Picerne Military Housing was formed to partner with the U.S. military to address the challenges of providing safe, affordable, quality housing for America's military Families. In 2004, Picerne Military Housing was selected by the U.S. Army to privatize Family housing at Fort Rucker. The Picerne Military Housing team is committed to working with Fort Rucker to provide high quality homes and first-rate neighborhoods. Picerne Military Housing has the added benefit of relying on its past experience through the privatization of the housing at Fort Meade, Md., Fort Bragg, N.C., and Fort Polk, La.
The Utilities Clearing House staff assists Soldiers and Family members with electricity, cable television and telephone service orders.

Off Post Housing
The Housing Services Office provides personalized assistance and instruction to Service Member's and their families on the Automated Housing Referral Network. This DOD program provides contact information for Housing Office's and real estate listings of homes for rent that are close to military installations.
The HSO counsels customers on customary real estate practices for this area, rights and responsibilities of the landlords and tenants, standards of conduct and Equal Opportunity in Off Post Housing. Renters insurance is also advised for coverage against the loss of personal effects and household furnishings.
We have requested local real estate companies include the military clause in their lease. Please review lease agreements and any other related documents before signing. If you have any questions or concerns while viewing the lease contact HSO or the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate they will review your lease for you. The HSO serves as a third party, mediates disputes, and provides guidance for all incoming and departing personnel.
