Christ Clinic Provides Free Health Care to Katy Community Following Harvey
Due to the flooding caused by Harvey, Christ Clinic has moved and rescheduled its Breakfast for a Blessing event. The 6th annual Breakfast for a Blessing will be held on Friday, October 20th at Crosspoint Church in Katy. Houston Methodist West will be the title sponsor for the event and Charles Smith, the Executive Commissioner for the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, will be the guest speaker. The event will raise funds that directly benefit the patients served at Christ Clinic.
Hurricane Harvey left many community members unable to access medical services due to evacuations, flooded roads and closed offices. On August 30th, as the flood waters receded from Kingsland Boulevard, Christ Clinic reopened. Over the next 7 days the clinic provided free medical services to over 700 patients ranging from patient visits to prescription refills. The clinic also provided 186 free tetanus shots to community members, volunteers and first responders. Christ Clinic partnered to provide primary health care with the organizations Heart to Heart International Disaster Relief and Project Hope.
As a nonprofit charity medical clinic, Christ Clinic provides medical care to the uninsured with a team of caring and dedicated volunteer providers and support personnel. In 2016, Christ Clinic provided more than 10,000 patient visits to uninsured members of the community. Christ Clinic also offers classes that promote healthy lifestyles and provides education about managing chronic conditions. To aid in post-flood recovery efforts, Christ Clinic will continue to provide free patient visits.
