Glen Rose is a community and now is the time we all need to work together.  If you can afford an additional donation to help continue funding our necessary services, it will be greatly appreciated.

If you need additional help, please do not hesitate to call.  We will do what we can within the strict guidelines set forth in this state of emergency.  If we are unable to assist you, we will do our best to direct you to the service provider you need.
