COMMUNITY RESOURCES

A community can be much more than just a group of people living in the same place. It can also be defined by identity (ethnicity, gender, religion), affinity (something people like to do and do together), and affiliation (people you know, shared experiences, and common values). Get to know and become a part of your community. Explore to find parks and recreation centers, civic organizations, the local library, places of worship, sporting events, and local bars and restaurants.

 

In addition to community resources, we provided information about utilities, other resources, and address changes. Click here for some tips on changing your address.
