"It's OUR Community:
Freed Community Center
The Mission of Houston Area Community Services is to provide a compassionate medical home for all people of Harris County, regardless of their economic status. It is our vision that HACS is a leader among health care providers and a model for stable, empathetic health care for the most vulnerable residents of Houston and the surrounding areas.
Established in 1998, HACS is a not-for-profit organization that provides affordable, quality medical care, a pharmacy, behavioral health services and living assistance to both individuals and families. HACS is designated as a Federally Qualified Healthcare Center by The Health Resources Services Administration. Additionally, HACS is certified by The Joint Commission as a Primary Care Medical home. These primary accreditations, in addition to others for the various departments within HACS, ensure that we continue to provide quality services by meeting or surpassing national standards for health care services.
It's just wonderful, they provide and they help with a lot, in a lot of different areas. I am more than sure that there's a lot more that they offer, we just don't use those areas. With everything they've helped us on, it's all worth it. We come out benefiting from it, of course.
