Allen Community Outreach

Rebuilding Lives in Allen, Fairview and Lucas by providing emergency assistance for families and individuals. Rebuilding lives, one family at a time…. Like building blocks, rebuilding the lives of a family takes many blocks, each carefully laid to build a foundation. The loss of employment, a family illness and unpaid bills can all cause a family to break down and create a feeling of helplessness. Help obtaining the skills to rebuild lives is available at Allen Community Outreach.

Opened in 1985, Allen Community Outreach (ACO) has helped families living in Allen, Fairview and Lucas to rebuild their lives through the many services provided. ACO is a non-profit organization, funded in part by Collin County United Way, an affiliate of United Way Metropolitan Dallas. The majority of funding for the agency comes from local, individual donations and fund raising activities.
