The Acres Homes community of Houston, TX and neighboring areas (zipcodes 77091, 77092, and 77088) have a total of 33,593 individuals without health insurance coverage (according to a 2010 - 2014 American Community Survey conducted by the US Census Bureau). This is approximately 30.1% of the entire population in that region. The high out-of-pocket cost of routine medical checkups, which can be as much as $200, leads many people without health insurance to forgo medical treatment until a visit to an emergency room is the last resort. As a result, many treatable issues are not diagnosed until it is too late to resolve them.
As part of its mission to address this massive health issue, UHP plans to open a low-cost, cash-only medical clinic at 6846 Antoine Drive, Houston TX 77091, in the heart of the Acres Homes community, to provide quality medical care to the large under-served, uninsured population of the area. UHP is building a quality medical operations team to run the clinic, and we need $5,000 to secure this key location while we prepare to begin operating the clinic.
Please consider donating to this wonderful cause and joining with UHP to have an impact on this community, the rest of Houston, and the world! For more information, please visit UHP at www.unitedhealthpartners.org, e-mail us at email@example.com, or call us at 713-510-7122
