WHO IS “BUILDING ONE COMMUNITY - THE CENTER FOR IMMIGRANT OPPORTUNITY”?
In 2011, we opened our doors to become a welcoming point of entry for newcomers from all parts of the world. Immigrants who relied on a patchwork of services in a system that didn’t fully understand their needs – and those who went without any help at all – discovered a place that we created with them in mind. Since then, thousands of Stamford-area immigrants and non-immigrants have come together to build one stronger community.
We were founded as an affiliate of Neighbors Link Network, a Westchester-based organization focused on immigrant needs. After the expiration of our 5-year affiliate agreement, we rebranded as Building One Community (B1C), a name that captures the heart of our mission.
Building One Community provides job matching as a community resource. We help employers connect with skilled workers for daily or seasonal jobs in a safe, secure and simple way. We are a referral service and we do not accept fees.
We can help you or your business find workers in the following areas:
Culinary and Catering: Waitstaff, bartender, party help and prep cooks (ServSafe Food Handler Certificates holders).
