Details: Good Neighbor Healthcare Center, a non-profit United Way health care agency, is proud of its long tradition of providing services in a caring environment where fees are charged on a sliding scale according to income. The clinic offers care in the following areas: pediatrics, adult care, women’s care, dentistry, and behavioral health. Breast cancer education and screening services are available, as are lab services and nutritional counseling. Partners in care include: the University of Houston College of Optometry Clinic, the Menninger Clinic, and our local Walgreens Pharmarcy. In 2005, Good Neighbor became a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC). FQHCs serve low income and medically underserved communities, and fees are based on the patient’s ability to pay. They are staffed by highly competent health care professional teams who provide quality healthcare to all people regardless of insurance status or income level. FQHCs are also community controlled by voluntary Boards of Directors. The majority of each Board must be users of the clinic.
Details: NDSM was established in 1983 to provide short-term, tangible emergency assistance for food, rent and utilities. Over time, assistance was enhanced with a menu of additional services including job counseling, English-as-a-second-language day and evening classes, school supplies, vision screening and eye glasses. The medical clinic opened in 2000. Initially treating adults and children for acute minor illnesses, the medical clinic rapidly expanded to include women’s health, hypertension, diabetes, dermatology and podiatry. In 2003, the medical clinic added emergency dental care for adults and in 2006 added an evening clinic managed by UT Southwestern medical students. When school uniforms became a DISD requirement in 2007, NDSM enhanced its school supply distribution program by also providing two school uniforms to each child. In keeping with our practice of meeting newly identified needs, we also initiated a free income tax assistance program in 2009. Since then, we have partnered with Foundation Communities to provide this service for low and moderate income individuals in the Dallas area. In 2013, collaborations with UT Southwestern and Texas A&M College of Dentistry provided additional staff and enabled us to expand services and increase the number of patients served. NDSM formalized its behavioral health efforts in 2016 by forging a relationship with the Center for Integrative Counseling and Psychology to provide full time mental health counseling to clients. Given the expansion of our programs over time, NDSM now provides a full array of services to our clients allowing for a holistic approach to their care. Reflective of this approach, in 2019, our medical clinic began serving clients 7 a.m. – 7 p.m. every weekday.

Details: CHCL was formed as a safety net - the largest in the Lubbock community’s health care delivery system - in 1992 under the guidance of the Lubbock Indigent Healthcare Coalition. Sister Mary Kathleen Small led this coalition, which formed CHCL under the principal of a hand up rather than a hand out. CHCL has grown from one site in 1992, to now having eight clinics within the city of Lubbock and operating two mobile units that provide medical and dental services to the counties of Lubbock, Crosby, Lynn, Terry, and Garza. CHCL went from serving over 9,000 patients a year in 1992, to serving 26,114 patients in 2016. In 2016, CHCL served nearly 10% of the total Lubbock population, 70% of which were below 100% of the poverty level (e.g., $11,770 or less for one person, $24,250 or less for a family of four). CHCL’s mission is to provide quality primary and preventative health care services to those in need, regardless of a person’s race/ethnicity, religion, gender, age, national origin, disability, or hardship. CHCL was developed based on the community’s needs to fill gaps in service.
