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.

For more information on the Sponsorship Program, contact your installation Military and Family Support Center.
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.
Families with children may also want to visit Military Kids Connect, an online community for military children and youth. The site offers games, videos and links to teen-led installation tours.
Contact your sponsor prior to your arrival and decide on a location to meet. An idea place to meet is the Bellevue Public Schools Welcome Center building which is located off Highway 370 and Fort Crook Road. The welcome center is down the street from the Kenney Gate (also known as the Flag Gate). If you want to have mail forwarded to you at Offutt, you can use the following address: (your rank and name), 105 Airman Circle, Suite 99999, Offutt Air Force Base, NE 68113-2070. When you arrive, your mail can be picked up at Building 365 Turner Hall, located left of the Kenney Gate after entering the base. Contact your gaining unit to be assigned a sponsor prior to your arrival. If you have not been assigned a sponsor after contacting your gaining unit, please call 402-294-4329 / DSN 271-4329 and ask to speak with the relocation team who can assist in getting you a sponsor.
