Asian American Health Coalition: HOPE Clinic

We are a federally qualified health center in one of the nation's most diverse cities -Houston, TX. We provide culturally and linguistically appropriate comprehensive health services to the community of southwest Houston and beyond. To most adequately serve our patients, regardless of where they come from, we speak over 30 languages in-house. This year alone we have served patients in over 55 different languages. We take great pride in having a staff base as diverse as the community we serve.

HOPE Clinic provides an array of services to our patients. Between our three easily accessible locations we provide general primary care for adults, pediatric care, OB/GYN care -including delivery, as well as Hepatitis B and C screening and treatment. We also provide behavioral health, dental, and optical services to our patients.

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 of 2002, the AAHC, in collaboration with the Chinese Community Center and the Chinese 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. 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 Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) with three locations (Main/Corporate, Alief, and West Houston). The clinic's caring and dedicated staff speaks numerous languages and provides culturally and linguistically competent, high-quality care to all, regardless of ability to pay.
