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.
Friendship House, a relief ministry sponsored by First Baptist Church of Garland, in conjunction with local churches and community organizations, was organized in 1977 to help meet the physical needs of those who were out of work, physically disabled, or low income for a variety of reasons and circumstances. With the help of many volunteers, it reaches out to as many as 175 families per week.
Memory Loss Support Group
Starting on May 24 we meet on the 4th Monday of every month for a support and education group for people who care for individuals affected by memory loss. Caregivers will share experiences, coping strategies and connect with others who truly understand the journey of caregiving.
Contact Terri Carter in the Church Office at 972-276-7194, x239, if you would like to register for this class, or if you would like more information about the memory Loss Support Group.
The ministerial staff at First Baptist Church is available for short-term counseling by appointment. For more information, please contact Jim Witt in the Church Office at 972-276-7194, x233.
In the event long-term or special counseling is needed, we recommend licensed counselor, Teri Holamon. Our pastoral staff can make other referrals as well.
