Moving is a way of life for service members and their families. Resources like MilitaryINSTALLATIONS, Plan My Move and Military OneSource provide important information to help make moving easier. For many newcomers, a sponsor can help add that personal touch.
A sponsor is assigned by a newcomer's gaining unit and helps the newcomer before, during and after a move. If you haven't been assigned a sponsor, you can request one through your new unit. Units try to match sponsors and service members by rank and family status.
To help prepare sponsors for success, the Sponsorship Program provides training and access to important information and resources that can help newcomers master their move. The Sponsorship Program helps sponsors fulfill their responsibilities, which may include:

Sponsorship is also available for youth. Installation youth sponsorship programs help military-connected youth make a successful transition to a new community. Primarily directed to preteen and teenaged youth, installation youth programs/centers provide information and materials on programs and services available at their new location. Where available, youth can exchange emails, talk on the phone or chat online with other youth. The youth program staff at your new installation can offer more information on installation youth sponsorship programs.
You can also contact your installation School Liaison Program office for information about school-based youth sponsorship programs such as Anchored4Life and Student2Student. These peer-to-peer programs help your student adjust to and navigate their new school.
If your child would like to become a youth sponsor, contact your installation School Liaison Program or youth program/center.
Soldiers must request a sponsor by filling out a form at the Human Resource Military office during their reassignment interview.
A sponsor will be assigned prior to departing your losing base. If no sponsor has been assigned, please contact your gaining CSS office or the Military & Family Readiness Center for assistance. Let your sponsor know when you are arriving and by what means. If arriving through nearby airports, you will have to rent a vehicle or pay for transportation service if your sponsor is unable to pick you up. If arriving during duty hours, report to your unit CSS office. They will set-up the appropriate in-processing appointments.

Lakehurst has a sponsor coordinator whose job it is to designate a sponsor. A sponsor's responsibility is to meet newcomers, escort them through the base and to make the transition as easy as possible. Contact the command sponsor coordinator at 732-323-2223 or military administration at 732-323-2656. Inbound service members should expect a letter or email from their sponsor. The command sponsor coordinator will forward a message and a Welcome Aboard Package.
Service members in transit may forward mail to the member's receiving department within the command or to the sponsor. Service members may also forward mail temporarily to their home of record.
