👉The story about “Build a Dream”

Since 1993, the center has served hundreds of children. In the past few years, the number of children referred to our CASA and Children’s Advocacy Center has more than doubled.

In 2017, Facility Task Force was formed and started the process of finding a new home. This team of board, staff and community members toured several other CASA and Children’s Advocacy Centers in the north Texas area to learn what features they would want for new place.

Preliminary drawings were drafted up. The team checked out existing buildings and searched for land that would be suitable for the new place, several offers were made for about two years, however nothing worked out.

In December 2019, they received a wonderful donation of land from Roy and Jan Reimer.

The land is 8 acres in all, at the southeast corner of Lee and Albert Broadfoot in Bonham. It’s a great location, near two schools and centrally located in our town.

In February 2020, they purchased a small lot that is adjacent to the donated land. In June 2020, Hammett Excavation donated their services to demolish the condemned house on this corner property.

In early 2020, An architect help bring the dream to life. July 2020, they selected MJMC Architects, PLLC and the planning process started!

The board has set a goal of raising $10 million for this project. As of May 2021, they have $1.5 million for the project.
