COMMUNITY RECOGNITION FOR GRACETOCHANGE 

GRACETOCHANGE RECEIVES GRANT FROM TEXAS BAR FOUNDATION

The Texas Bar Association recently awarded its Fall 2022 Charitable Grant to GraceToChange. The Association recognized the benefits of GTC's "Treatment Over Incarceration 2023" program. 

 

The program offers scholarships for Collin and surrounding county residents charged with non-violent drug and/or alcohol offenses who are currently doing well within the parole/probation system. The program's overarching goal is to reduce and/or eliminate relapses and ricidivism by providing education and skills that create the path toward a lifetime of recovery.

GRACETOCHANGE RECEIVES AWARD FROM LOCAL PHILANTHROPY

At their Spring Giving Event, 100 Women of McKinney, a local philanthropy passionate about making a difference in the community, selected GraceToChange to receive a financial gift in recognition of their service to those needing treatment for substance abuse. 

The philanthropy showcased three deserving organizations and asked members to choose which organization would receive the financial award. GraceToChange was honored to be among such great company as The Hope Clinic of McKinney and the McKinney Little Free Pantry. GTC was humbled by the award and so happy that more residents will be able to receive treatment because of this gift.

AS COLLIN COUNTY GROWS, NONPROFITS IN FIELDS LIKE SUBSTANCE ABUSE WILL BE TESTED

We see the signs. We hear stories about doctors charged with overprescribing or selling prescriptions. We read headlines about an opioid crisis sweeping the country. Heroin in lower income communities; prescription pain medication in the higher echelons.
