    The mobile clinic gives free medical care to underserved children from newborn to 18 years of age. The clinic is open to the public; children do not have to attend the school where the bus is parked to receive care.

    History

    In 2000, the Junior League of Houston, Inc. donated the SuperKids mobile clinic to Texas Children’s Hospital to benefit the medically underserved children of Houston. For the first two years, the League supported all the clinic’s operating expenses. Since 2002, SuperKids Pediatric Mobile Clinic has been funded entirely through donations to Texas Children’s Hospital. Between the fall of 2000 and May 2013, the clinic has seen 50,782 patients.

    Your gift to Texas Children’s Mobile Clinic Program will help build a community of healthy children. With your assistance, the free clinics can continue to provide basic health services to medically underserved children in Houston.
