We are social distancing but we have remained open to serve our Collin County community. Now more than ever our neighbors need us and although we are not seeing clients in person, we are managing cases by phone and email. We are receiving hundreds of calls a day for assistance with rent payments because many in our community have lost their jobs due to COVID-19.

We are working diligently to keep families in their homes during this crisis and we are so thankful for our wonderful community partners and donors but the need is great. If you are able to make a donation, your support would help a family remain in their home for another month. Thank you from all of us at the Assistance Center💙
