CRRC of Canyon Lake is an amazing resource, be it providing assistance to those in need of food or utilities, or providing space for people of like hobbies to come together.

Canyon Lake, Texas is a unique area. We have a very diverse demographics; people living in poverty, families with
young children, to those that spend the strictly the winters here, or those that use this area as a vacation/retirement spot. The need here is all over the gamut. The older populations need the interpersonal connection through exercise, activities, and simple interaction with others. Our youth need a place to provide a safe outlet for their energies and interests. CRRC of Canyon Lake offers that through the food bank, recreation center and activities building, but the bulk of the funding is through donations to their thrift store.

CRRC offers so much to our community! With additional funds, the skies the limit. It would be amazing to see.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

witnessing those in need who come into the food bank and resource center and how grateful they are for assistance. I also am a parent who has children participating in the sports program offered through the recreation center.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

try to somehow provide the organization more funding.

We have the best CRRC anywhere. Wide variety of opportunities are available to all ages. The facility is great, especially since we have the new A/C & Heat. The folks who provide the daily programs are the best anywhere. As a Senior, it gives me the oppportunity to meet other folks and have the conviences that otherwise would make me drive many miles to obtain.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Exercise classes for Seniors called Silver Sneakers, Yoga, Weight Watchers, Sports, blood pressure checks and endless opportunities for seniors like myself who need to be involved in the community in which I live. This is a great facility with great personnel who are always there to help us stay involved. I think we are so fortunate to have hard workers who make al this possible.

CRRC has helped me in several ways. It has provided a place to come and meet others who are interested in making our community a better one to live in. I have been a part of two different exercise groups that meet there, and I believe the classes I attend there help my physical and mental health. It has also been used by numerous community organizations: to raise money at Fiish Fries or Craft Sales, and just as a meeting site.
In addition it has been a part of our local Meals on Wheels service, and it regularly serves as a place to donate used items, the sales of which are donated back to the community.

Love this facility and the things it offers. I participate in the Silver Sneakers exercise program, and it has helped me (at the age of 66) lose approximately 30 pounds. It's both a healthy exercise program and a socialization opportunity, and I miss it when we are out of town and I can't find anything else as good. I have friends who play dominoes every week in the building also, and I know they are thankful for a reliable place to meet and socialize. I've attended events there, such as meals to benefit local organizations. It is always in use. That's where I usually get my yearly flu shot also. It just serves all of us in this area in so many different ways. I think the biggest need at the time is an upgraded PA system.

It's always such a pleasure to come to the CRRC. Whether it's for a fund raiser for our community, or exercise or just to socialize over a game of cards, the CRRC sets a high standard in our area. Everyone feels welcomed here.

In 1993, I moved to this area not knowing one soul so I looked for a place to volunteer. I liked the mission of this organization and started working as a volunteer driver to take folks to doctor appointments, but when they needed a receptionist I started working in the office. That' when I really learned the scope of the place. No day was ever the same: from helping a family with food or rent to organizing workers to clean up after a flood, CRRC has always been first in line when it comes to helping area residents. While their mission hasn't changed over the years, their services have and their list of accomplishments is too numerous to detail in this space. Just suffice it to say that when there's a need, CRRC is the first place folks turn to. Even when we can't help them, we point clients in the appropriate direction to receive services from other organizations. That's why "Resource" is part of the CRRC acronym.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the faces of those CRRC has helped. Clients are shown true concern and treated with respect. Many of them have returned later to volunteer.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

give them a more recognizable name. CRRC is an acronym for "Community Resource & Recreation Center". While I understand the reason for its current name, it would be nice to have something more recognizable.

I was asked to write a review about CRRC of Canyon Lake INC. I look forward to going to the exercise class on Monday's,Wednesday's and Friday's. The staff are so kind and hepful. They do soooooo much more other then exercise classes. They are so involved in Canyon Lake businesses.. and helping people out!!! I love the Christmas show each year, and all the good things they have at this Center. I know the CRRC center will only get better, and better....and if they do get extra support---you can bet it would be put to good use....
Thank you

What an amazing organization that makes a difference in our community! The CRRC performs many tasks such as being a local food pantry, providing meals on wheels, lending medical equipment, providing financial counciling, assistance with utilities, childrens sports, exercise and fitness classes, meeting space for events and clubs, thrift store and much more. The organization is the hub for the Canyon Lake community and I'm so grateful for the opportunity to support its mission.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The CRRC helps people. I've seen hungry people being fed, people who needed clothes or shoes being helped with goods from the Thrift Store, Flu Shots being given by the county Health Dept. helping the elderly stay healthy, free blood pressure checks, Line Dancing classes making people feel young again, a wheelchair or potty chair loaned to a post op resident or hugs being given to someone who has just found a job through the help of a job posting. This organization makes a difference in people lives.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help them develope and participate in more programs that benefit the community. This is the goal of the CRRC and I'm grateful that the board of directors, volunteers and employees work hard everyday to achieve this!

I moved to the Canyon Lake area last summer and was thrilled to learn about aerobic classes at the CRRC. From the first day, both staff and participants have made me feel so welcome and a part of the group. As a result of visiting the CRRC, I have made many new friends and learned about my new community.
