***Blanco Community Resource Center Construction Update***
Construction of the new Blanco County Community Resource Center in Johnson City continues with a revised opening date of January 2020. Community Resource Centers of Texas Inc. and their partner organizations continue to work alongside local, regional, and state agencies to provide social services to community members.
Community Resource Centers of Texas Inc. is excited to expand into Blanco County to continue their mission of raising the standard of living in rural communities by helping to identify the population’s present needs. Types of services the CRC can connect people with include the following: mental health, employment, educational, food pantry, transportation, affordable housing, family crisis, health care, older adults, and children.
The new Blanco County CRC project includes construction of a 7,500 sq. ft. building that will offer space for 30 plus federal, state, and nonprofit agencies to provide their services to Blanco County residents. The CRC will not only increase access to existing area services, but it will also provide a place for agencies to deliver new services. This includes free medical offices for DSHS and Hill Country MHDD to address mental and behavioral health concerns in Blanco County. The Highland Lakes Family Crisis Center will have a full-time, on-site family crisis counselor available. Other plans for CRC health-related programs include a Prescription Assistance Program, benefits enrollment assistance in government programs like SNAP and Medicaid, and help locating available resources for uninsured individuals. The Johnson City Christian Food Pantry will move into the CRC to continue their work serving the hungry alongside other agencies addressing food needs in the county. CRCTX operates Older Adult Rural Services (OARS), which will help older adults maintain independence and quality of life through solutions like transportation and immediate financial assistance. Additionally, organizations like the Area Agency on Aging and the Alzheimer’s Association will be there to assist with the needs of older adults. Any nonprofit agency interested in acquiring office space at the new CRC may email their inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org.
