Texoma --  The Texoma Community Center (TCC), the provider of Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) services for Cooke, Delta, Fannin, Grayson, Hopkins and Lamar Counties since 1981, announces the ECI program will transition to a new provider, Easterseals Central Texas. The program will be effective February 21, 2018.

TCC’s Chief Executive Officer, Daniel Thompson, notified State Officials in October that TCC would give up the program, noting that program recipients would be better served if the program were administered by larger, better-funded providers.  Thompson notes that no other programs at TCC will be impacted by this program move and that TCC will continue focusing on further development of their Substance Use Disorder, Developmental Disability and their Adult and Children’s behavioral health programs.
