We look forward to gathering this year as we continue the fight to PROTECT our community’s most vulnerable. RIDE on Sunday, October 24th, and show your SUPPORT for children in Collin County impacted by abuse and neglect.
By partnering with Custom Ink, we can provide you three shirt options, have them shipped directly to you and you can avoid the line the day of the ride. Shirts will be sold at the ride, but styles will be limited, and the price will increase! Buy early and save!
Mark your calendar for North Texas Giving Day - the one day each year that Communities Foundation of Texas will give bonus funds for any donation of $25 or more made to the Center! Thanks to you, last year we raised $81,670 on #NTxGivingDay! This year your gift will help us ensure we can provide services to every child victimized by child abuse in Collin County!

Mark your calendars:
Join us in recognizing just a few of our many hard-working staff and their wonderful accomplishments over the past few months!
