Texoma Community Center hosts open house to celebrate expansion

Posted:

DENISON, TX -- The Texoma Community Center held an open house Wednesday showcasing their new facility for mental health patients.

The space is located in Denison and split into two parts. The upstairs will serve as assisted living apartments for patients with food and laundry provided, while the crisis center will be downstairs and support those clients transitioning in or out of the psychiatric hospital. Staff, clients and other Texoma agencies came to the open house to support the center.

"It has been something that we've dreamed," said Brent Phillips Broadrick, the Mental Health Director, "at the center and have not had the financial availability to do this until recently. So it's something that so needed. It's a huge expansion of our crisis and program."

Broadrick says patients start moving in tomorrow. The old residential space will host substance abuse patients and is open to people with or without mental illnesses.
