For a number of years we have been considering expanding our community development efforts into Austin, Texas. The capitol of our state and home to one of the nation's major universities, the University of Texas, Austin is a key city in many respects.
We considered very seriously undertaking this venture about four or five years ago, just after we expanded into San Antonio. Today Urban Connection--San Antonio is flourishing under the leadership of Leslie Kelsie-Grubbs and her team.
Now seems the time to expand into Austin as Urban Connection--Austin.
As in the case of San Antonio, our key first step was finding a leader up to the challenge. Dean Smith is that leader. We are excited to see our beginning efforts go well. Take a moment and visit the site at the end of the link below. I think you'll be encouraged.
If you'd like more details, don't hesitate to contact me. We need support to insure the continuation of our successful beginning.
