Cross Creek Ranch Donates $20,000 to Texana Center
Fulshear’s Cross Creek Ranch has donated proceeds from this year’s Scarecrow Fest — $20,000 — to Texana Center.
It is the third year the Johnson Development community has raised money through its annual fall festival for Texana Center, a 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to change lives every day through treatment for autism, programs for adults with intellectual disabilities and those with behavioral healthcare issues.
The funds support the center’s capital campaign to build a campus in Fulshear that will house a retail training center, the organization’s nationally recognized autism program and a new college-like program for adults with autism and/or intellectual disabilities.
This spring, the Texana Center broke ground on the facility’s first phase, which will include the retail training center consisting of a small bistro-style sandwich, coffee and gift shop where teens and adults in the program can get hands-on training. The shop also will feature a drive-thru. This first building also will hold two classrooms — one for the Children’s Center for Autism and the other for Texana’s new adult program.
