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.
Sponsors are identified and assigned as soon as the receiving command is notified of a prospective gain in personnel. The sponsor then sends the inbound service member a letter with an address and phone number, as well as useful information about the Weapons Station. The service members will then utilize the Command's address in order to forward personal mail to his/her new command while in transit. If you do not hear from your sponsor and your transfer date is approaching, please contact the Command Sponsor Coordinator at 757-887-4355/4144 or DSN 312-953-4835.
