OSA hosts a number of community-building events that families can attend throughout the school year.  Here are some of the resources that are available:

Harvard Students' Spouses & Partners Associaion (HSSPA) organizes a variety of events throughout the year for Harvard students and their spouses and families, such as social gatherings, dinners and outings.

While the HGSE Career Services Office is unable to provide career counseling to spouses and partners, you may still take advantage of its directory of popular job listing websites.
