Community Lifeline Center

Established in 1989, Community Lifeline Center provides a lifeline to individuals and families in Collin County who are experiencing a crisis in their lives, affording assistance to clients so that they can get back to self-sufficiency. Assistance is provided through the Lifeline Food Market (which provides free food for short term emergency) and Emergency Expenses (such as, energy bill, rent/mortgage, medical & dental).

Community Lifeline Center exists because a community stands tallest when it kneels to offer a helping hand. They serve individuals and families who reside in the cities of Altoga, Anna, Blue Ridge, Celina, Copeville, Farmersville, Josephine, Lavon, Lowery Crossing, McKinney, Melissa, Nevada, New Hope, Princeton, Prosper, Westminster, and Weston.

Party in the Parking Lot

Thursday, October 18, 7-9 p.m.

Party in the Parking Lot, Community Lifeline Center’s largest fundraiser, will be held on Thursday, October 18th from 7pm to 9pm in – you guessed it – the Center’s parking lot! The costs are kept low by erecting a tent in the parking lot of the building and having local restaurants donate food and drink – that way more of the money we raise this evening can go directly to CLC programs and services! There is a local band (Below the Radar) and an opportunity to tour CLC’s facilities and meet Board, staff and clients. It is the best evening of advocacy, food, cocktails, entertainment and networking you will ever experience – all in the comfort of your casual duds. No cocktail dresses and stuffy tuxes here – this party is all about having fun and raising money for a GREAT community resource! 

Party in the Parking Lot tickets are $50 each and available at Donations can also be made at the CLC Party webpage.

Since 1989, Community Lifeline Center (CLC) has been the premier provider of crisis assistance for McKinney and 16 additional North Collin County communities – Altoga, Anna, Blue Ridge, Celina, Copeville, Farmersville, Josephine, Lavon, Lowery Crossing, Melissa, Nevada, New Hope, Princeton, Prosper, Westminster and Weston. In fact, CLC is recognized as a “homelessness prevention agency” by the City of McKinney. We provide “a hand up” to guide our most vulnerable community members back to self-sufficiency.  Assistance provided by CLC ranges from financial help – rent, utilities, medical, dental or prescription assistance – to information/referral and advocacy, while the client choice Lifeline Market Food Pantry helps those in need put food on the table.
