Texas/New Mexico

Health for a better world starts with our commitment to understanding and serving the needs of the community, especially the poor and vulnerable. In 2019, Covenant Health, invested more than $75 million in community benefit to promote and transform health and well-being within the communities we serve.

We believe health is a human right. This belief underpins our efforts to support comprehensive access to health and social services by addressing the foundational gaps in care for the most poor and vulnerable members of our communities. With each investment we make and partnership we develop, we find ways to best address and prioritize our region’s most challenging needs as identified through our community health needs assessment. The process includes a review of public health data, interviews with key stakeholders, and community focus groups with an intentional effort to include potentially under-represented populations.

    • Social Determinants - including housing and food insecurity

    We are working to increase the number of people who have access to health care, connect individuals with resources, and address core issues such as food and housing instability, social isolation, education and other factors that contribute to improved well-being.

    A few of the inspiring ways our investments are working in our community include:

    • Providing counseling services by directly operating Covenant Community Counseling Center which provides free and reduced cost counseling to those in financial need. We also provide a counselor, free of charge, to engage in weekly on-site counseling sessions at the Legacy Home for Women in Lubbock, TX. Additionally, Covenant Health partners with Texas Tech University to provide graduate students, therapists in training, to Covenant Health Levelland to provide counseling services to the Levelland community.
    • Supporting the Lubbock Dream Center’s Action Family program both financially and with in-kind staff. This is a community program designed to promote healthy and productive lifestyles through food outreach, weekly health checks, health education, family fun nights, physical exercise, and incentives. This program inspires hope and nurtures the well-being of the whole person, respecting physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. The Action Family program provides a safe, wholesome environment needed to nurture and develop healthy productive lifestyles for the uninsured, low-income, and homeless population.

    We are grateful for the opportunity to serve the Texas/New Mexico Region and look forward to continued community partnerships as we seek to collectively achieve health for a better world.
