A little about Texas Charitable Clinics
The health system in Texas is comprised of entities with overlapping services, goals, challenges and Charitable Clinics are a critical part of this system. These clinics utilize a holistic, cost effective patient centered approach providing a wide array of services that go beyond the physical health of a person. Clinics work across multiple systems including health, social services, educational, spiritual, etc. to help meet the needs of their patients. The care that they provide their patients leads to healthier individuals, controlled diseases and an overall healthier community. To help support the work of these Charitable Clinics TXACC provides the following services.
Education and Training
TXACC provides ongoing education and training activities for clinics in our network. They include face-to face activities such as conferences, retreats, regional training programs, webinars, and connecting clinics with local training opportunities.
Technical Assistance and Resources
TXACC provides technical assistance and consultation to association members. Helping provide assistance in establishing processes and procedures or implanting new programs to help clinics achieve maximum efficiency and quality of services is the goal of the TXACC technical assistance program.
TXACC works with organizations with similar missions and/or with services that would be beneficial to our membership to create program enhancing services and connections. This include negotiating discounts for products, notifying membership of grant and funding opportunities.

I can’t put into words how vital TXACC has been to our clinic these past 2 years. Your organization played a huge role in getting our clinic started and the success we have had. Please do whatever you can to keep this organization going. Yes, you do make a difference in the Health Care industry!
TXACC is our lifeline! Your organization keeps us posted on the latest news involving community clinics, helps us stay connected to other community clinics, and provides encouragement and support when we think we are the only community clinic out there facing overwhelming odds.
A statewide association helps all of us, because it validates the existence of free and charitable clinics as viable parts of the community.
I love having TXACC as the hub I can use to communicate with other clinics like ours around the state. That is invaluable.
