​​AUSTIN AREA CHAMBER OF COMMERCE

AUSTIN'S COMMUNITY CONCIERGE


HOW DO YOU GET STARTED?

The Austin Area Chamber of Commerce is most often the first stop for people anticipating a move to our community.  Each year, the Chamber receives requests from hundreds of people who want to know more about living and working in the Austin area.  The Chamber's Someplace Special magazine provides city fact information that a person moving here might need, including: housing, schools, and healthcare, to mention a few.  It also features an excellent pictorial of the outstanding quality of life we all enjoy in Austin and the surrounding communities.  The magazine, along with a listing of current members and an area map, are included in the relocation materials mailed from the Chamber office.  Many of the area businesses use the relocation packet to recruit employees to the area. Please let us know if you would like to receive a relocation packet.

A few year's ago, I was a "Trailing spouse," having moved to the community with my husband and two children.  I would love to share what I have learned with you.


As your Community Concierge, I will work with you to provide community information, educational and recreational opportunities, housing, and employment opportunities for you and your trailing spouse.  My goal is to welcome you and your family and connect you to the community.


I look forward to passing along what I have learned about this great place to live, work and play.

A FEW OF THE THINGS I CAN HELP YOU WITH

HOT MEALS ON WHEELS, INC. is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization that consists of dedicated volunteers who deliver nutritious meals to residents in Austin, Minnesota, who are elderly, physically or emotionally unable to obtain food, disabled, or otherwise can’t prepare full meals.   This service enables these members of our community to live independently in their own homes with dignity. 

The meals are professionally prepared at licensed facilities and delivered, Monday - Friday, between 11:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m.
(The meal options are: General, Low Sodium, Diabetic, Bland or Soft)

The cost is $4.00 per meal.  (Invoiced Monthly)

State and Local assistance is available for eligible individuals.  Financial donations help to provide healthy home delivered meals in our community.
