Texana Center Awards Cross Creek Ranch for Continued Support

(Fulshear, TX – June 13, 2018)       —        Texana Center awarded Cross Creek Ranch the “Community Supporter of the Year” award at a Reaching for the Stars ceremony May 30.

The center, which provides behavioral healthcare and intellectual and developmental disabilities services to residents in a six-county region has been a beneficiary of the popular Cross Creek Ranch Scarecrow Fest for the past three years.

“This particular category was especially tough this year because we have had so many tremendous supporters, but the support we’ve received from Cross Creek Ranch has been over and above,” said Andi Wallis, Community Relations Manager for Texana Center. “The community has not only helped us financially but also brought welcome attention to our organization and important projects.”

Cross Creek Ranch added Texana Center to its Scarecrow Fest beneficiary list in 2016 to support its capital campaign to raise funds for a facility in Fulshear. To date, $23,500 has been raised for Texana Center through the Scarecrow Fest. The organization will again be a beneficiary during this year’s event, planned for Oct. 20.

“Texana Center already is making a difference in the lives of people with developmental disabilities within the region,” said Rob Bamford, General Manager of Cross Creek Ranch. “The facility planned for Fulshear will allow Texana to serve even more children and adults.”

Texana Center recently broke ground on the first of three buildings planned for its campus along FM 359 north of downtown Fulshear. The first building will house a retail training center for teens and adults with autism and/or intellectual disabilities. The participants will get hands-on experience operating a small bistro-style sandwich, coffee and gift shop. The building also will have a classroom for the expansion of Texana’s Children’s Center for Autism and new adult services that include a daycare program and college-like program. The other two buildings planned for the Fulshear campus will allow both programs to be operated full scale.

Texana Center is a 501(c)3 organization that operates more than 40 facilities throughout Austin, Colorado, Fort Bend, Matagorda, Waller and Wharton counties. More than 800 staff members run six behavioral healthcare clinics, five learning centers and more than 20 group homes. For details, visit www.texanacenter.com.
