How To Build Community After A Move

Volunteer

Moving into a new place is daunting in and of itself. Moving to an entirely new community can be even more overwhelming. At Capitol Moving & Storage, we have over 50 years of moving experience under our belts and have watched many different families and even businesses settle into their new community quite nicely. If you are moving to a new community, try not to stress. At Capitol Moving & Storage, we have all the tips for how to build community after a move.

Volunteer Work

Looking for ways to really build a community? Volunteering for your local community is a great place to start. Take a look at the plethora of opportunities around the area and pick one that you find interesting! Whether you are working with animals or coaching children, finding those that volunteer their time, too, can spark life-long friendships.

Make New Friends but Keep the Old

While the town you may be heading to may be new to you, it’s likely you have some contacts in the area. Whether you search for old friends on social media or finally visit the friend you just haven’t seen in a while, reconnecting with old friends can be a real treat. Not only can you reminiscence on the past, but someone may be able to introduce you to their local friends and expand your community circle tremendously.

Do What You Love

Moving to a new community is a great opportunity to pursue passions alongside others that share the same interests as you. Whether you are an avid runner or happen to enjoy bird watching, there are many groups within communities that offer unique meetups for those interested in the same hobbies or passions as you. Even finding one friend amidst pursuing your passions can open up the possibilities for your community to expand.

Great Minds Think Alike

In addition to pursuing your passions, it’s also a great idea to build a community with people that share your same belief system. For example, those that share the same faith will typically worship together during their church services. Political groups will host meetings and organize meetings to ignite their own political agendas. Building your community can mean joining a multitude of these things.
