TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries receives $7,500 donation from Woodforest Charitable Foundation.
Tomball, TX – Woodforest Charitable Foundation recently donated $7,500 to TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries in support of their program that provides services to medically uninsured citizens. More than 23 years ago, TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries was founded from the concern of local residents who witnessed a man die in Magnolia from an infection and a little girl in Tomball who lost her hearing due to recurring ear infections. These people did not seek medical treatment due to lack of medical insurance and inadequate finances to pay for services. TOMAGWA is a nominal fee, comprehensive family practice clinic that provides medical services regardless of race, creed, ethnicity, religious affiliation or the ability to pay. Last year, more than 250 dedicated professional and service oriented volunteers along with a small staff provided more than 10,800 family member visits, from babies to grandparents, who could not afford health care and were without health insurance, Medicare or Medicaid. The mission of TOMAGWA is to be a Christian ministry that, by the Grace of God and in response to the Love of Jesus, provides quality health care, offers hope and restores dignity to uninsured, low-income families and individuals in the Tri-County region of Tomball, Magnolia and Waller. The clinic is a full-time, comprehensive family practice center serving low-resource, uninsured families and individuals with access to early intervention for potentially fatal conditions and proper care for chronic illness and other non-emergency care. We offer a broad range of primary and non-emergency healthcare services, including, acute/chronic illness care, wellness examinations, breast cancer screening, lab work including x-rays, vision/hearing screening, pharmacy services, nutrition counseling, and cardiac evaluations. “It is because of your generosity and belief in our mission that we are able to perform this work and we are deeply grateful for your partnership,” said Judy Deyo, Executive Director of TOMAGWA HealthCare Ministries.
