Hope Gathering

Hope Gathering is a new group designed to minister to widows and help them find hope and healing in Christ-centered communities.


Hope Clinic

Hope Clinic of Garland was incorporated in 2002 as a 501(C)(3) organization to provide urgent medical care and offer health education, personal encouragement and Christian ministry to the underserved and uninsured residents of Garland. Beginning with one night a week in a borrowed space with an all-volunteer staff, Hope Clinic of Garland has grown to a full-scale operation facilitating approximately 8,000 patient visits each year.

Through a network of over 35 Volunteer Physicians, our specialty services now include Cardiology, Dermatology, Optometry, Endocrinology, Gynecology, Pulmonology, and Rheumatology. We are also able to refer patients for Surgical, Nephrology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedic, Podiatry, Urology, and Dental services.
