Casa El Buen Samaritano
Casa El Buen Samaritano is a non-profit, free clinic in southwest Houston, whose mission is to share the love of Jesus Christ while providing whole-person healthcare to the low-income and uninsured. Patients served at Casa are below 150% of federal poverty guidelines and come from over 100 zip codes in the Greater Houston area. Casa opened its doors in 2009 and served just over 1,000 patients. While the number of patient visits at Casa continues to grow, the number most important to us, is the number of professions of faith. In 2016, out of 1,980 patients served, 78 patients made professions of faith. That’s double the number of salvations in 2015, which was 36 professions of faith and 1,622 patients receiving healthcare. What makes Casa unique from other free, health clinics, is our mission to share the Gospel with every patient, at every visit. It allows our physicians and ministry volunteers to build a trusted relationship with patients. Most importantly, it offers the opportunity to pray with them, and bring hope and healing, one patient at a time.
“The grant from the Stoller Foundation has allowed us to expand capacity to provide patient services, promote patient health, and create intentional ministry opportunities. It’s exciting to see God at work at Casa and in the lives of our patients.”
