Community Resource Coordination Group (CRCG)

Do you find it difficult for one agency to meet your child’s needs?  Or, have you struggled to meet the “right” criteria for certain programs or services?  If so, a local CRCG group may be for you!

Community Resource Coordination Groups (CRCGs) are inter-agency groups comprised of local partners and community members.  CRCGs develop individual service plans to help children, youth, families, and adults whose needs can only be met through services from multiple agencies and program.  The CRCGs bring those agencies and programs together to develop individualized service plans to ensure that care is coordinated through non-traditional solutions when bridging service gaps and addressing other barriers.

CRCGs may include the following representatives:

LOCAL PARTNERS:

  • Community and faith-based organizations
  • Family representatives
  • Juvenile Justice representative
  • Local intellectual and developmental disability authority
  • Local mental health authority
  • Local school district personnel including a counselor or social worker
  • Non-profit organizations
  • Probation Office representative

 

STATE AGENCY PARTNERS:

  • Texas Correctional Office on Offenders with Medical or Mental Impairments (TCOOMMI)
  • Texas Department of Criminal Justice (TDCJ)
  • Texas Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS)
  • Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs (TDHCA)
  • Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS)
  • Texas Education Agency (TEA)
  • Texas Health & Human Services Commission (HHSC)
