To provide free, quality, compassionate healthcare to individuals and families of North Texas dealing with chronic and non-emergency acute illnesses, who have barriers to accessing healthcare, by promoting wellness and providing physical, emotional, and spiritual care in a loving, nurturing environment.
Open Arms Health Clinic was conceived by Christian health professionals to help the many families and individuals in our community with limited access to affordable healthcare. In November of 2011 after just one year of planning, God provided the path and the means to open our doors. Open Arms relies on a rotating group of volunteers - doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, med techs, social workers, interpreters and office staff - who work hard to give patients compassionate, quality care. We are blessed with what God has provided, but also aware that the need is far greater than our resources currently provide.
Open Arms is always in need of more volunteers, especially medical professionals and Spanish-English interpreters. We have to turn people away almost every time we open because we do not have enough providers to see them all. With more volunteers, we could see more walk-ins with acute health problems and ultimately open more hours.
