Working in Mission
Mission TX is a beautiful town near the US-Mexico border, this gives easy access to come and go from the country, the houses are beautiful, there is always construction going on, meaning new things are being built or improved. The only bad thing here is the celebratory gunfire that occurs every year during New Years and at times Christmas. Many other places also have this problem, but other than that the weather is perfect most of the time and everything overall is great!
Mission is generally throughout the year a safe community to live in. It is rare for lethal/deadly armed robberies to occur in both public place and private homes, and the policing around Mission is visible. While Mission is a safe community to live in since the residents in the city generally keep to themselves, if families do have children who are not emotionally supported or are not educated about the dangers of various drugs, sex education, or manipulation, those children may be at risk. The RGV has staggering statistics on minors using both prescribed drugs and street drugs. Teen pregnancy is also a common occurrence in my city and in addition to teen pregnancy, registered sex offenders are common. Although I live in one of the safest non-gated neighborhoods in Mission, I have a minimum of registered five sex offenders within two miles. If children are educated on the patterns of harmful social peer pressure and manipulation, they should be safe from trouble.
The City of Mission is a great place to live and do business! Located along the U.S./Mexico border, Mission is part of one of the fastest growing MSAs in the country. It has experienced tremendous growth in population, business development and its economy in recent years. Come enjoy the warm weather and rapid growth Mission, Texas has to offer. It’s the perfect place to do business or raise a family.
