Welcoming Newton

“Welcoming Newton” is a grassroots effort led by a pair of Newton citizens to support newcomers to our city while also furthering the engagement of all residents in all things related to life in Newton.


  • Our goal is to help everyone who moves to Newton have the information and connections they need to feel a part of and get the most out of our community.
