TheCenter will establish a maximum monthly fee for persons who are determined to have the ability to pay. The Center bases your monthly payment (if any) on the Financial Assessment and the HHSC Monthly Ability-To-Pay Fee Schedule. The Financial Assessment considers the number of family members and annual gross income, reduced by extraordinary expenses paid during the past twelve (12) months or projected for the next twelve (12) months.

Our Story

About the Center

In 1970 Center for Life Resources was established after a long range planning by several community advocates, for individuals living with a mental health condition, i.e., Janie Clements, Reverend John Darden, and W. Lee Watson. As an agency of the State, the Center has provided services in the counties of Brown, Eastland, Coleman, Comanche, San Saba, Mills, and McCulloch for individuals living with a mental health condition, Individuals with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities, and substance use. Furthermore, the counties of Kendall, Kerr, Kimble, Gillespie, Mason and Menard are served by Center for Life Resources Early Childhood Intervention (ECI).

A 24-Hour Crisis Intervention Hotline is available to the residents of the region and works cooperatively with local law enforcement agencies and hospitals.

A nine-member board governs the Center. Eight members are appointed by the County Commissioners and one is appointed by the Brownwood City Council. These members represent the respective counties served.
