We're so glad you're here!

We hope your transition to Alaska is going smoothly. Sitka is an incredible place to call home, thanks to its active community, mountainous landscape, and plethora of recreational activities for families.

Our Hospitality Team coordinates the care of our newcomers. Please let them know if you need any assistance with your move or finding your bearings once you arrive. We are more than happy to help!

The CGSWA is thrilled to welcome you and your family to this beautiful town. Our main goal is to support Coast Guard families with their transition to Sitka and help make this duty station feel like home. Through outreach and programming, we foster a sense of community and camaraderie, allowing our members to take full advantage of living in this vibrant place while meeting new people and making lifelong friends.

Let us know you are new to town!

If you are a newcomer or if you know of any new CG families/ active-duty personnel who have arrived in Sitka, please fill out the form to receive a “Welcome to Sitka” bag. These bags include a warm welcome from many local businesses including gift cards and discounts!
