“Help” can take a variety of forms, each of which is vital to the success of the mission. Our goal is to provide firm footing to those experiencing temporary crisis. Their needs may range from financial support to goods and services. Where children are involved our primary aim is to provide support that minimize the trauma of need. Your donations of money, supplies, food, services, or time are an essential ingredient in serving Collin County residents.
