RGV New Residents*

Moving is a traumatic experience! We all need stability, especially children. Moving means change and making decisions in an unfamiliar environment. We want you to feel at home quickly, and that’s why we have prepared this site especially for you. Here you’ll find useful information about hospitals, schools, transportation, and much more.

In a way, we are like you, exploring and discovering the Valley. We recognize that there is still much more to know. But don’t worry; we will be updating our findings. Have this site handy!
