Frisco Cares Children’s Clinic was established in 2005 as a product of Leadership Frisco. Its purpose was to address the growing healthcare needs of uninsured children in Frisco and the surrounding communities of Little Elm, Celina and Prosper. Our story is long and full of patient success stories. FC has seen patients out of school buses, churches, and old house in historic Frisco, and most recently is building new space off of Main Street near Preston.
In 2011 our mission changed to include adults and the city specific boundaries were dropped. In 2013, we became North Texas Cares, NTX Cares, in an effort to reach more residents in Collin and Denton Counties.
Today, NTX Cares has 20 volunteer medical professionals, including two pediatricians, a family practice doctor, two physician assistants, five nurse practitioners, and over 40 volunteer nurses. We also have 75 plus non-medical volunteers who are dedicated to helping children and adults in need. Each year volunteers provide thousands of hours of service. Our mission is to provide the highest quality, most cost efficent health and wellness care to the underserved in our community. NTX Cares has been fortunate enough to receive both monetary and in-kind donations from the community. We have partnered with restaurants for “dine and donate” nights. Employers have begun offering give initiatives and matching employee donations via payroll deduction. Our ability to care for those in need is largely due to your generous support.
