Community Concierge: Community Resources for Newcomers
As we face the challenges of coronavirus as a nation, the local real estate market remains strong and more housing is being developed to house the new labor market moving into the region. We have a lot to offer, especially now as people are reevaluating where they live.
Community Concierge shares information about the region and the outstanding quality of life in eastern CT. A program developed by the Chamber under a grant from Thames River Innovation Place, Community Concierge created materials employers use in their recruitment and orientation of new employees and their families.
