HEALTHCARE

Health is essential. We have partnered with leading healthcare providers to improve access to care. Access to good healthcare is challenging even for North Texans who have household incomes above the median. For households with lower incomes, access to good healthcare can seem impossible. Growing a healthy family, continuing to work and becoming self-sufficient are all supported by a foundation of good health.

To help our clients have access to healthcare resources, DHA has partnered with several organizations to provide health services to our clients:

THE BAYLOR SCOTT & WHITE HEALTH AND WELLNESS CENTER

The Baylor Scott & White Health and Wellness Center (BSW HWC) at Juanita J. Craft Recreation Center offers comprehensive health and wellness services with an emphasis on access to care, health education, nutrition and physical activity. The Center is a model for population health, community collaboration and innovation all aimed at meeting the healthcare needs of our neighbors.

People who live in the Frazier neighborhood of southern Dallas have the highest rates of diabetes, heart disease, cancer and stroke in the city. To improve this situation, we work together with the City of Dallas in a joint effort to provide better prevention and access to care.

The on-site health clinic has five exam rooms and two providers on staff. The physician and nurse practitioner work hand in hand with nutritionists, health educators, social workers and other health professionals to provide quality care—all conveniently located in the Juanita J. Craft Recreation Center in South Dallas.

THE CEDAR SPRING EYE CLINIC:
IMPROVING DAILY LIVING THROUGH BETTER VISION

DHA has a partnership with the University of Houston College of Optometry to host the Cedar Springs Eye Clinic. The clinic focuses on vision care for our clients and provides services including eye exams, prescriptions for glasses and comprehensive care for eye conditions. Some of the glasses and lenses our clients receive through the clinic are provided at little to no cost. Eyemart Express based in Dallas recently donated 1,100 eyeglasses to the clinic.
