Community Lifeline Center, one of Collin County’s most diverse human services organizations, is consolidating from two locations to its building at 1601 North Waddill Street in McKinney. Effective Feb. 1, the organization, which serves 17 communities across Collin County, will house client services in the same building as administration and operations.
Asked about the change, Christine Hockin-Boyd noted, “As we begin to celebrate our 25th year in 2014, and reflect on how to best steward the funds our many donors entrust us with, it became clear that consolidating our physical space will allow us to be more efficient in all aspects of our mission. In recent months the securing of additional administration and operations office space helps make this possible.” Asked about the impact on agency and client services, Hockin-Boyd added, “For case managers, clients, and especially now with our new Lifeline Market customers, communication is key. Proximity matters when it comes to managing complex client services.”
Community Lifeline Center was founded in McKinney in 1989. CLC serves over 400 families and individuals a month, keeping people in their homes, utilities turned on, and food on the table. Services range from job search, budget, computer training, and family counseling, to rent, utilities, and medical assistance. Community Lifeline Center reports that 90 days after CLC support, 84% of clients are able to remain in their homes, and there is a 55% increase in employment.
Community Lifeline Center can be reached at 1601 North Waddill Street, Suite 102 McKinney, TX 75069. 972.542.0020.
