Foundations of Healing

We are thrilled to invite you to be a part of an exciting new chapter for Lubbock Impact. Our mission has always been to serve our community with compassion and care, and with your support, we are taking a monumental step forward. Our renovation project will enhance our facilities, allowing us to better meet the needs of those we serve.

NOTES FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTORTAKE A TOURPARTNERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

We are honored to share an inspiring impact statement video from one of our guests, highlighting the profound difference Lubbock Impact has made in their life. This story is a testament to the vital work we do and the positive changes your support can bring about.

The Real Impact

He is like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit. Jeremiah 17:8

Social Room/Offices

This space, like most of the rooms on this side of the building, is dual purpose. Monday through Thursday, these rooms are offices for our Lubbock Impact staff members.

Our Executive Director, Becky Robertson, works out of this main space. Our Program Director, Haley, is in the far office and our Communications Manager, Raelynn is in this office.

As you can imagine, yes, there are lots of interruptions when it comes to using a shared space because this is also the space people walk through to access the other side of the building!

On Wednesday evenings, which is clinic night, the office staff clear off their desks and pack everything away for the space to be utilized by the social workers who volunteer their time during clinic hours.

The social workers that volunteer here are such a vital part of our poverty alleviation focus. They help patients in lots of ways from helping them apply for insurance, providing situational counseling amid hard diagnoses, and connecting patients with the resources they may need whether through Lubbock Impact or one of the other organizations in Lubbock.

The seating here also serves as the pharmacy waiting room on Wednesday evenings. The pharmacy, which is right across the hall, has filled over 5,700 prescriptions since 2021. These medications range from one-time antibiotics to regular, life-saving insulin- all at no cost to the uninsured patient seen here. The pharmacy is staffed by registered pharmacists and licensed pharmacy technicians.

Front Office

This is Lubbock Impact’s front office. This front door has been and will continue to be the main doorway for our participants. As these individuals enter here, our mission is for every individual to find hope, empowerment and healing.

If you look at your blueprint, this room where we are standing will be the main entrance. This wall will be roughly where the new reception desk will sit, and this space (*behind current reception desk*) will become the clinic waiting area.

As those seeking help come through the door, to the left will be the medical clinic, and to the right will be designated Lubbock Impact staff offices.
Currently we can host the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center Free Clinic once a week which allows them to serve around 30 patients. This once-a-week model has served over 3,000 uninsured patients since 2021.

To give a larger perspective, as of this time last year, there are reported to be over 54,500 medically uninsured adults under the age of 65 living in Lubbock County. This obviously is a very large issue and one of our main goals with this renovation is to expand the opportunities to host clinics multiple days a week.

Clinic Hallway

For some context on this space, this building used to be Trinity Baptist Church. In 2007, they donated it back to the Lubbock community to meet the needs of the working poor.

This side of the building was designed for their pastoral and administrative offices and the choir practice rooms. As we are walking through, you’ll see all the ways that this space has been repurposed as best as possible for the Free Clinic and Lubbock Impact operations in the last 15 years.

As is the case with old buildings, over the years there have been necessary repairs that needed to be made. Unfortunately, the budget did not allow for the cosmetic damage that came along with it to be addressed.

When Lubbock Impact began hosting The Free Clinic in 2009 the space was adapted to accommodate this one clinic. Over time, multiple medical providers through Covenant Health Systems, retired physicians and medical professionals, and the city’s Health Department have shown interest in hosting medical clinics here. Our remodel will allow this vision to become reality. We will have a very functional and adaptable clinic space that will allow us to offer more clinic hours for our participants. The bottom line is this remodel will allow us to provide more medical care to more patients.

Medical Clinic Main Room

This room is another multi-purpose room which serves mainly as the doctor consultation room. Every Wednesday evening, at least 30 medical students, doctors and residents who are volunteering their time convene here to discuss treatment plans.

Additionally, 3 of the 15 patient rooms are accessible from here.

This also is where the lab operates. Behind this green line on the floor is the designated space for the lab where patients get blood drawn.

Feel free to take a second to look around the rooms in this space.

This restroom that we’re about to squeeze through is used both for UA’s in the lab as well as the only walkway between the registration area and this space.

Registration Room

This space is called the Registration Room.

A patient wanting to be seen here would have walked through the same clinic door you entered through and completed paperwork at the main registration desk.

Once paperwork is completed, they are brought to this space to have an initial evaluation then are led back to the waiting room until it is their time to see the doctor.

The doors open at 4pm for registration each Wednesday but because the capacity only allows the first 25 patients to be seen, many start lining up as early as 2:30. The doctors and clinic staff are often here seeing patients until 9pm or later.

The Free Clinic gives the uninsured patients who need treatment access to many services including x-ray, lab work, education on things like nutrition and diabetes, mental health support, dermatology, and ophthalmology.

The fact that these services can all be theoretically offered in one space is a very efficient and resourceful model. The problem, however, is that the current setting up of the clinic is not conducive for all these services to be offered in the most efficient way.

Our heart has always been to help the uninsured in our community feel seen and provide them with the highest quality of care that we can. That’s why when patients come here, they also receive a hot meal and information about our other services like the clothing closet and food pantry. They are more than just patients in the waiting room to us.

We know that there is a need for more availability of accessible medical care for the uninsured. We’re currently limited but using this space the best way we can. The renovation will exponentially expand the accessibility of what we’re able to provide!

Sanctuary

If you’ve never been to Lubbock Impact before, the side of the building that we were just on is the clinic and office side. The second story of what we walked through also includes Lubbock Impact’s volunteer run Dental and Eye clinics.
In addition to the spiritual care that Lubbock Impact provides, Lubbock Unified Church meets here in this sanctuary once a week.

The space that we just toured through has been utilized to the best of our abilities over the last 15 years and has served thousands of uninsured patients.
The newly renovated space will allow for better patient flow, much needed patient confidentiality and the ability to host clinics more than one day a week.

Our long-term goals are to have a sustainable clinic space not just for the Free Clinic operated by the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center but also for the City of Lubbock Health Department, Covenant Health Systems, and other medical providers.

Lubbock Impact has already been granted the funds for the base of the renovation, but we need your help to fully fund this project. Our plan is to remodel this side of the building into a sustainable and efficient clinic space giving priority to excellent patient care and confidentiality. Our collective desire is to help meet the overwhelming and unmet medical needs of the working poor in this community which falls under our overall mission of empowering the working poor while helping to meet their physical, emotional and spiritual needs.

We invite you to come alongside us to ensure this project is fully funded with no debt acquired.
