Hope Clinic

In 1994, a group of Asian American women established a non-profit organization called: the Asian American Health Coalition (AAHC). Their dream was to one day establish a community health center that would provide culturally competent and linguistically appropriate health care to low-income and uninsured Asians in Houston. In October 2002, the AAHC, in collaboration with the Chinese Community Center and the Baptist Church, established HOPE Clinic (Helping Other People through Encouragement). As an all-volunteer, part-time health center, HOPE Clinic provided basic primary care services to a limited amount of patients once a month for only four hours. During Hurricane Katrina in 2005, HOPE Clinic played an important role by providing services to over three thousand evacuees with the support of the community. Today, HOPE Clinic is a professionally staffed and full-time Fedderally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) Look ALike. The clinic's caring and dedicated staff speak more than five languages and provide culturally and linguistically competent, high-quality care to all, regardless of ability to pay. Last year, HOPE Clinic had almost eight thousand patient visits, and is operating at full capacity.
