Creating Meaningful Impact

Since our launch in 2000, the team at Health Ministries Network of Texas has worked tirelessly to promote our cause. We are fortunate to have volunteers and staff from all walks of life who bring their unique expertise and resources into everything we do. This is what enables us to achieve our goals year after year.

While there is always more that can be done, there is no doubt that we are making a significant impact. We don’t measure our success through just facts and figures, but through happy faces and heartwarming feedback. See how you can become part of the difference.


Improving the health, and health outcomes of Texans

Commitment, Spirit of Volunteerism, Innovation. These three values have stood at the center of the Health Ministries Network of Texas mission since our founding in 2009. We wholeheartedly commit to the work we do with passion and dedication. Most of our volunteers come from Faith Community Nurses who partner with Faith Organizations and Churches to meet the health needs of the community through intentional care of the spirit.  We challenge ourselves to think creatively, applying an innovative approach to all that we do. This drives the continued success of          Health Ministries Network of Texas.
