Military life teaches a lot of things, but doesn’t always protect veterans from the surprises that can arise in civilian life: health and family issues, job loss, unexpected financial problems, stress and emotional issues.

Community Lifeline Center in McKinney is now able to provide a range of support services to Northern Collin County and McKinney veterans or their qualifying family members.

"We’re here to serve and support, being the recognized veterans provider for North Collin County," said Christine Hockin-Boyd, executive director of Community Lifeline Center.

Services include the following, and more:

  • Housing & utility assistance
  • Medical and dental
  • Prescriptions
  • Transportation
  • Counseling
  • Job development/training
  • Legal assistance
  • Auto care
  • Bereavement

If you know of a veteran in need, please encourage them to contact Community Lifeline Center at 972-542-0020. The center's offices are located at 503 N. Kentucky Street, Suite A, in McKinney.
