Our Story

Hope Clinic of McKinney opened its doors in 2017, but the vision for clinic began with a single man in need in 2014. Homeless and found lying on the side of the road, his legs were gangrenous from untreated chronic disease. He needed help, but did not have medical insurance. From his need, a local church began to learn how to be a part of the solution. 

In June 2016, Hope Clinic of Garland, a well-established charitable clinic in Dallas County, welcomed the church leaders into their facility and provided much-needed encouragement and direction. Hope Clinic began an incredible partnership with the Baptist Immigration Center, who generously offered to donate the use of their building to Hope Clinic when they were closed. Empowering Community Health Outreach donated their consulting services to provide vital direction and infrastructure to clinic planning.  

By January 2017, a larger team had formed to spearhead Hope Clinic’s communications, site planning, operations, legal, and financial goals. Through the hard work of its volunteers, and with support of the community, Hope Clinic opened its doors in July 2017 to provide medical services⁠—regardless of a patient’s ability to pay⁠— at the Baptist Immigration Center. In September 2019, Hope Clinic relocated to a permanent home to allow for increased operating hours and to serve more patients.

Over 100 volunteers from all across the community have worked together to serve our uninsured neighbors at Hope Clinic of McKinney. Since opening, Hope Clinic has served hundreds of patients and provided thousands of appointments to patients who otherwise would have gone without care or sought care in an emergency room. 

We need people like you to serve those who need it most.
