Andrews Center may accept gifts, grants, and donations of money, personal property, and real property for use in expanding and improving the mental health services available to the citizens of our area.
Although the government provides some services for persons with disabilities, due to budget cuts, many agencies that provide these services have had to downsize and eliminate some services. Contributions from the community are needed to fill in the gaps to help address these unmet needs.
For information on making a donation, please contact the executive assistant in the Tyler administrative office – 903.535.7338.
