A Bit of Health Services of North Texas History

HSNT has a rich history of caring for those in our community that need us the most and one of our founding community advocates, Barbara McCraw has been there with us since the very beginning. Barbara McCraw, Master Quilter, is a community advocate, friend to HSNT and many community groups. Barbara and Ernie McCraw connected to HSNT as soon as they moved to Denton in 1995. They served as volunteers, Board Members, donors, advocates, and friend to many staff and clients.
HSNT recently learned through an article in the Denton Record Chronicle that Barbara’s passion for quilting began when she was volunteering at ASNT.  Click here to read more about Barbara’s work.
