About Shifa Healthcare & Community Services

Our Story

In 1997, as part of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston, a few medical professionals and project managers came together to offer free social and medical services to the community. Shifa Clinic opened its doors in 2002 and has grown into a 501(c)(3) nonprofit healthcare organization consisting of five medical clinics and one women’s center. Our mission is to provide holistic primary healthcare services, integrated with social support programs, to improve the quality of life for low-income, uninsured, and underserved families. We are dedicated to making quality healthcare services accessible and treating each of our patients with dignity and respect. In addition to offering primary care services, we also treat acute conditions and infections
