Mission Statement

Our mission is to work in partnership with the community to promote and protect the health and social well-being of all Houstonians

Description

We provide traditional public health services and seek to use innovative methods to meet the community’s present and future needs. An example of our grass roots effort to document the community’s needs is the Assessment, Intervention and Mobilization (AIM) project. Through AIM, we go door-to-door in selected neighborhoods performing assessments, linking residents to services and providing immediate follow-up. We’ve partnered with nonprofit, Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHCs) and the hospital district primary care clinics to enhance access to services for residents and improve the city’s health profile. Other efforts include our innovative HIV testing program for the community called "Hip-Hop for HIV." To at-risk youth in Houston high schools we offer "wraparound services." Together, these services build a better, healthier cadre of youth and ensure a better future for at-risk children, schools and the community at large.
