Enhancing the overall ability of Texas Charitable Clinics to provide the highest level of care.
Fostering the best charitable clinic network in the country.
While attending the 2003 Southeast Regional Meeting of the National Association of Free and Charitable Clinics (NAFC), representatives of
3 Texas clinics explored the idea of creating a State association. They wanted an organization similar to the National Association which would
be more accessible and would better serve the unique needs of Texas Charitable Clinics.
In March of 2005, Lone Star Association of Charitable Clinics incorporated in Texas. In September of that same year, LSACC received 501(c) (3) status.
In the fall of 2007, through the generosity of then St. Luke’s Episcopal Health Charities, the Texas Alliance for Patient Access,
LSACC opened its first office, based in Austin, Texas, and hired its first executive director.
To better distinguish this organization from others in 2015 the name was changed to "Texas Association of Charitable Clinics”.
