Children’s Alliance Center celebrates opening


With just a glance at the parking lot, one could tell that the Children’s Alliance Center for Palo Pinto County open house was packed – dozens of people from all demographics showed up. Everyone wanted to know what CAC was up to.

At 5:30 p.m., CAC Board Member and local pastor William Eudy kicked off the event with the invocation. Following suit, Palo Pinto County District Attorney Mike Burns welcome the people, State Representative Jim Keffer delivered words of encouragement, CAC Executive Director Libby Cluett led the covenant, Alivia Collier and Keaton Burke prayed and CAC Board Member Reverend Pam Holt gave the blessing. All shared strong words of encouragement.

“We are grateful that you give us this avenue to serve you (God),” Eudy said. “ Father, we are sorry that there is a need for something like this in our county, but we are so grateful that you have gifted people to meet this need.”

“A community that invests in its children will be the beneficiary of their successes, and that community will thrive for years and years to come,” Burns said.

“I want you to know that everyone of you that are employed here or going to volunteer here or are going to be working with the alliance here, this is not a job, this is a calling,” Keffer said.

Before and after the kick off, guests were shown all around the facility, gaining insight into what CAC has been doing and the technology they will utilize to efficiently help children.

For more information on the CAC, contact Libby Cluett at 940-468-3629, ext. 402.
