History

The community center system was established after the passage of the Texas Mental Health and Mental Retardation Action in 1965. The purpose of community center is to provide services to people with mental disabilities in an effort to all them to live and work in the community.

The Heart of Texas Region MHMR Center was established by local taxing authorities in 1968 and is currently sponsored by McLennan, Limestone, Hill, and Bosque Counties. We serve a six county area including McLennan, Limestone, Hill, Bosque, Freestone and Falls Counties. We provide services under contracts with federal, state, and other entities to individuals with a mental illness and/or a developmental disability identified as priority population. We also serve developmentally delayed children.

The Center employs around 450 full- and part-time staff and is governed by a nine member Board of Trustees appointed by county commissioners.
