Hill Country Community Ministries is the next local community service organization that Your Local Color.com is highlighting. Located in Leander, Texas, this organization is doing its good work in the southwestern portion of Williamson County and northwest Travis County, and is the result of the joint efforts of a local churches, local businesses, local service organizations and amazing individuals concerned about the well being of their friends and neighbors. They are our friends and neighbors – make no mistake.
One of those amazing individuals at Hill Country Community Ministries is its Executive Director, Sherry McDonnell. Sherry has been with HCCM for seven years and has seen the need grow quite a lot over those seven years. Sherry came to HCCM after a couple of decades working as a corporate vice president, public relations professional and nonprofit consultant in Houston, and brings her much appreciated leadership talent to help make HCCM the success it is. Sherry gave me a lot of important information to report to you. I can’t possibly cover all of it in this written account, so please watch the attached video to get more detail on what HCCM does for your local community.
Just like the Round Rock Serving Center and The Caring Place in Georgetown, Hill Country Community Ministries opens its arms and its doors to local residents who are in need of help. HCCM operates a food pantry and a clothes closet, but it offers many additional services to its clients. HCCM coordinates with other area social services organizations and provides referrals for clients to more than 75 agencies to help them access additional assistance. The objective is to build a “safety net” under the family to help them through their time of crisis. For a full list of services please check out their website or watch the video. [Read more…]
