The U.S. Army established the Total Army Sponsorship Program to assist soldiers, civilian employees, and family members during the relocation process. Program participants are provided with accurate, timely information and other support needed to minimize problems associated with relocating to a new duty station. The program is available to the Active Army, the Army National Guard, the United States Army Reserve, and to civilian employees whose assignment to a position within the Department of the Army requires a permanent change of station (PCS).
Fort Gordon has developed a web site which enables a soldier who is being assigned to Fort Gordon to request a sponsor. The web site is: http://www.gordon.army.mil/acs/
If you have any questions about the Sponsorship Program, contact this link: Contact: Email
The Fort Gordon sponsorship program works closely with the Army Community Service (ACS) Agency, and relies on the local ACS center to provide relocating personnel with counseling, welcome packets and pre-move destination information.
