Welcome & Connect Initiative Kicks off March 15

Event series aims to help new international residents connect to local offerings

Clifton Town Meeting, Cincinnati Compass and the Clifton Branch Library have teamed up to create Clifton Welcome & Connect, a series of seven events aimed at helping new international residents in Clifton to understand the services and resources available in Clifton and beyond and how to use them.

Scan the QR code to request a translator at Clifton Welcome & Connect events.

Each session covers a different topic, including transportation, education and childcare, healthcare, housing and immigration topics. Each event is held at a different Clifton location and experts will be on hand to answer any questions.

Fore more information, click here. To request a translator, scan the QR code.

While the series is geared toward international residents who have recently moved to Clifton, all are welcome and encouraged to attend to learn and make our new neighbors feel welcome!
