What Our Families are Saying
When we came to Austin, we became better connected to the community after my parents asked for support from the Welcome Center. They helped us with what we needed, and also provided fun things to do in the community.
I encourage everyone to take advantage of the opportunity to learn about those various cultures that make us who we are now locally. We are better together than we are apart. Those differences that do exist only serve to add layers of depth and complexity to Austin and Mower County as we move to seeing a new and higher number on that sign at the edge of town a decade from now.
Chief David McKichan, Austin Police Department
