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.
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 assigned by the individual’s gaining unit. Make sure you have a sponsor assigned prior to departing from your losing duty station. Keep in contact with your sponsor as your sponsor can assist you with information to help you with your transition. Be sure to request that your sponsor obtain a postal service center mail box at the post office ahead of your arrival; this will ensure your mail is not interrupted during your PCS move. If you are coming to Patrick Space Force Base or Cape Canaveral Space Force Station and do not have a sponsor assigned to you, you may contact your servicing commander support staff or you may also contact the Patrick Military and Family Readiness Center at 321-494-5676 or DSN 312-854-5676 and ask to speak with the relocation program manager for assistance.
Your first stop after arriving in the local area should be your unit's Command Support Staff section. If you arrive after normal duty hours, report to the Space Coast Inn in Building 720. The next morning you will be required to report to your CSS where you will receive additional in-processing instructions.
