Hello and welcome to the New York Community Support page. My name is Stephanie and I am the State Community Support Coordinator for New York State. My goal with Army OneSource is to provide resources and support services and to implement a proactive and integrated program to ensure all customers receive the same quality of service and support from the closest component resource.

We are known for diverse natural resources, dozens of welcoming small communities and hamlets, a bountiful agriculture sector, and the world class 1000 Islands tourism region. We are the home of the U.S. Army's Fort Drum and embrace our military soldiers and families as valued friends and neighbors in our County.
City of Watertown
Renowned for its Public Square, Watertown welcomes you to northern New York. Settled in 1800 and incorporated as a city in 1869, Watertown is located just 25 miles south of the Canadian border and 70 miles north of Syracuse. The city developed as an industrial center because of the hydro power available from the Black River, however much of the industry is now gone. Although the population of Watertown is 26,700, the daytime population doubles, as Watertown is still the regional center for government and commerce serving the entire north country region. Watertown is Jefferson County's largest community and in addition to being the county seat, it is the host community for Jefferson Community College.

The Greater Watertown-North Country (GWNC) Chamber of Commerce was established in 1903 by Watertown's leading businessmen, and since that time has grown to be the largest business association in the North Country. With nearly 1,000 members, the Chamber represents the business interests of over 22,000 employees throughout Jefferson County and the region, and has representation from every business sector as well as government and the military within it's membership base.
