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.
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.
All service members must participate in the Total Army Sponsorship Program and should be in contact with their sponsor prior to arrival (if the service member has PinPoint orders). If the service member does not get a response from their designated sponsor or has not had a response from the unit regarding their sponsor, please contact the Relocation Readiness Program by emailing to request assistance in the process.
To request a sponsor contact your new unit via email, in writing or by telephone. You can also request assistance with obtaining a sponsor by calling or emailing the Army Community Services Relocation Assistance Program 011-82-5033-4497 or DSN 315-763-4497.
Incoming personnel should use a permanent mailing address or establish an on base P.O. Box to ensure timely receipt and forwarding of personal mail while en route. Service members using the gaining unit for receipt of mail should coordinate with the unit to ensure your mail is held for you and not returned.
