Our Partners

In 2014, Hope Clinic of Garland, Inc. received national recognition as the only free clinic to be awarded a Level 3 Accreditation for Quality Care. This could not be done without our valued partners. Hope Clinic is proud of our partners who contribute services and supplies. By working together, we expand Hope Clinic’s ability to provide primary care to Dallas County indigent patients. This joint effort for increased healthcare reduces the overload at the hospital emergency department and reduces costly hospitalizations, resulting in better healthcare for an underprivileged population.

Why I Give to Hope Clinic

Jim Witt – Associate Pastor/Missions Mobilization, FBC Garland and Hope Clinic Board Member

“Hope Clinic has been a labor of love for me since the first day the idea of Hope was presented to me in 2001. I had lived in Garland for 2 years. It was clear to me that there was a tremendous need in health care among the medically uninsured community in Garland. Also, I had a desire to be part of something that would address the spiritual needs of the community in an unapologetically Christian way. Hope from the beginning has done both.”

“Watching Hope grow has been an amazing journey of God doing “immeasurably more than all we can ask or imagine.”  Who would not want to give to that? Others have been able to give more.  No one has given with greater joy.”

— Jim
