The Interagency began in 1989. In 2006, the Interagency became incorporated. Today, the Interagency continues to fill gaps in services for our community. The Interagency currently receives funding from St. David’s Foundation and United Way of Williamson County to provide rural, school-based mental health services in Taylor, Bartlett, Granger, Thrall and Coupland ISD’s. The Livingston Foundation recently provided funding for the Interagency to assist with “Read to the Top”, a summer literacy program sponsored by Mt. Calvary Baptist Church. The Livingston Foundation also provided funding for the Interagency to support midnight basketball, a summer mentoring opportunity for at risk youth. Additional services offered include child development training, early literacy promotion, the annual sox box collection, sponsor mental health first aid USA training, and non-profit monthly networking opportunities.
