About The St. Hope Foundation
St. Hope Foundation Inc. is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) community healthcare organization that was established in November 1999. Recently, St. Hope implemented the Patient-Centered Medical Home model of care. Our organization was created in response to the growing need for innovative, effective healthcare designed to provide quality services to reduce health disparities within Houston, Texas and rural counties. We serve patients from various disease states that include, but is not limited to, heart disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, Hepatitis C, obesity, high blood pressure, obesity, gout, skin disorder, cancer, and mental health.
As a comprehensive, federally-qualified Health Center (FQHC), St. Hope targets unmet needs and gaps in health-related services, fostering client-centered programs to meet these necessities.
Within the last 18 years of service, St. Hope has performed routine health screenings for more than 30,000 people and has been a key prevention contractor for the City of Houston, DHHS, Bureau of HIV/STD and Viral Hepatitis Prevention, and Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
Prevention and wellness are essential guideposts at St. Hope. Known for conducting large community health promotions in resource-limited areas, St. Hope has garnered support both locally and nationally for its innovative sexual health screenings with BET’s College Road Tour Rap-It-Up campaign, targeting young African Americans and Latinos at historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs).
The St. Hope Foundation receives funding through several financing streams, including HRSA, Ryan White, Centers for Disease Control, DSHS, City of Houston, The Simmons Foundation, and several private foundations.
