Community Connections-New Neighborhood Bag
Welcome to Brooklyn Center! 
A couple hundred homes are sold each year in Brooklyn Center resulting in many new residents. With this in mind, the Brooklyn Center Housing Commission has embarked on a new project- delivering “Welcome Bags” to our newest neighbors. The objective of the program is to say hello, provide information about the City and surrounding areas, and demonstrate why making your home in Brooklyn Center is a great decision! 

New Neighborhood Bag Welcoming Initiative 
Local business owners, are you interested in attracting more business and connecting with your community? Participating in the New Neighborhood initiative is a great way to help welcome new residents, as well as introduce your local business or services to your community members. It’s as simple as completing the Community Connection Form and offer a free gift, service, or item with no strings attached. We will take care of the rest by creating a graphic card with your business information and your offer to the resident. For more information or if you have any questions, please contact Jesse Anderson at (763) 569-3420 or .

The New Neighborhood initiative is an exciting program that enlists in volunteers to welcome new homeowners to the City of Brooklyn Center. Volunteers from the Housing Commission fill welcome bags with helpful community information, as well as free gifts, coupons, or services from local businesses.  The New Neighborhood initiative aims to engage residents, new homeowners, the community, and local businesses to connect with one another and encourages new residents to eat, shop, and play in the City of Brooklyn Center. This past summer approximately 500 bags were delivered to new homeowners with this goal in mind.  If you would like to be a part of this impactful initiative and you are enthusiastic about meeting new people and are looking for a fun and interactive volunteer experience, please contact our Deputy Director, Jesse Anderson at (763) 569-3420 or .
