We have come a long way since we opened our doors in 2000. Mission East Dallas started in 2000 when a survey showed that about 50,000 individuals were without health insurance and a medical home. Through a donation of property, equipment and supplies, a group of concerned community members partnered with Churches and rebuilt an abandoned Nazarene Church, transforming it into a medical and dental clinic. These services were 100% free and for the poorest, neediest and uninsured individuals and families of East Dallas. During our early years, Mission East Dallas was staffed with un-paid volunteers and opened about 4 to 6 hours a week.
The demand was out‐pacing what the “Little White Clinic” could supply and the doors were barely kept open due to rising costs. The Board of Directors looked at all options and decided to pursue a Community Health Center (CHC) model. This model allows Mission East Dallas to be open a full 40 hours a week and to see many more patients.
We have never stopped, nor will we ever stop seeing the poor or indigent.
We seek to be a provider of choice for all that are looking for a medical home.
Your support plays a critical role in creating access to care and allowing Mission East Dallas to grow and serve more individuals and families!
Where we are at today is wonderful and our future is brighter than ever!
