The Burnet County Community Resource Center was recently awarded a $1,500 grant from the Cadence Bank Foundation. The donation will help the center address basic needs and community services.

“We are pleased to receive this award that will benefit individuals coming out of local residential shelters and those leaving successfully after substance abuse recovery,” Community Resource Centers of Texas Executive Director Lucy Murphy said in a media release. 

The Burnet County CRC is one of four locations of the Community Resource Centers of Texas Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit that has served rural Texans since 2005. Each of the four centers, also located in Blanco, Llano, and Williamson counties, helps individuals in need of housing, employment, food, and transportation. 

The organization also provides free office space at its centers to other agencies that share a similar vision.

“At our CRCs, we are seeing firsthand the urgent need to support our clients and their transition from temporary to permanent housing,” Murphy said. “We partner with local nonprofits and churches to provide resources that aid in financially stabilizing them so they can begin to thrive.”

The Cadence Bank Foundation engages with nonprofits similar to the CRC to work together to generate financial welfare for families across the bank’s footprint. 

Local Cadence Bank partner Nique D’Alise will provide on-site education during resource days at local Burnet County substance abuse recovery houses and be available in the Burnet County CRC periodically to help the center’s clients establish banking accounts.
