Prelude Clubhouse

A community center for adults living with mental illness, its members collaborate with trained staff to perform all the work necessary to maintain the organization and facility. Members contribute their unique skills to further each member's wellness and recovery. The work-ordered day provides a routine schedule while after-hours social activities provide opportunities for fun and fellowship and ongoing education.

Prelude Clubhouse is located  at Vintage Church, 107 E. Lamar Street in McKinney and just opened its doors as of February 7th 2017.

You can contact Prelude Clubhouse by going to: or calling Diana McEwen, Volunteer Acting Director, at 469-301-6639.

All-Abilities Playground Project

Imagine a playground where children of all abilities and ages can play together, with a focused consideration for children with special needs. 

An “All Abilities” playground expands the focus of a standard playground to allow children with special needs (Down’s Syndrome, autism, muscular dystrophy, visual and hearing impairments, cerebral palsy, spina bifida and other challenges) to experience the “Gift of Play” alongside other children.

This is exactly what is coming to McKinney!   Organized by the McKinney Rotary club, the playground will be located at Bonnie Wenk Park, near the corner of Virginia Parkway and Hardin Blvd.

Filtered Coffee House CEU's

March 18 at Filtered Coffee House in downtown McKinney between 2 to 4 pm , we will be holding a continuing education credit seminar for licensed psychologists directed by Dr. Morris.   The seminar is open to the entire community and addresses the subject of testing Autistic children.  Issues such as the challenges of getting accurate diagnoses for children with autism as well as what tests can be used to measure cognitive function in this specific population will be the primary areas of discussion.   After the presentation, the meeting will be open for questions. 

Donations of 30 to 40 dollars for the CEU credit are appreciated.
