Since 1957, Centers for Children and Families (Centers) has helped strengthen individuals and families in West Texas. The agency was founded to provide counseling for those who would otherwise be unable to afford the services that would assist them during difficult emotional times.
Over the years, our objective has remained unchanged: to meet the needs of families, regardless of the level of income. We are designed to be an affordable resource for adults and children facing various stages of need.
MCYR will be hosting its March meeting tomorrow, March 25th, at Gerardo’s Casita in Midland (2407 N Big Spring St) at 7pm.
