Every year the Allen Police Association donates money and time to benefit numerous charities, groups and organizations in the Allen area and nationally.
Allen Community Outreach (ACO) began in 1985, and today is the sole local provider of free human services for the cities of Allen, Fairview and Lucas in Collin County, Texas. At first the agency was called Allen Information and Referral, but very quickly the scope of services grew and the name was changed to Allen Community Outreach (ACO) to reflect the community support. Over the past 30 years, ACO has grown from strictly information and referral services to a wide array of human service provisions. ACO’s “One Stop Shop” facility – the first of its kind in Collin County – provides a seamless system of services and programs. - ACO
