As 2020 draws to a close, I am reflecting on what your trust in us has allowed us to do this year. Your dedication to supporting culturally competent sexual wellness allowed us to open our first Kind Clinic in San Antonio and our third Kind Clinic in Austin. With your help, we can continue to respond to sexual health needs in more communities.
Your commitment to healthcare in a safe and affirming environment gave our clinic operations team and Kind Clinic providers the ability to transform our telemedicine services from 8 sessions per week to 80 sessions per day. Your ambition of ending HIV encouraged the growth and innovation of our Outreach and Testing team, and we have more than tripled our in-clinic and community testing. Through your support, we can remove barriers to sexual healthcare.
I am proud that Texas Health Action through its Kind Clinic program continues to rise and meet this moment. This holiday season, I am also grateful to community friends such as Tito’s Handmade Vodka who is supporting our fundraising by matching up to $2,000 of donations made through December 31st. Help us be ready for the New Year when Waterloo Counseling Center becomes a program of Texas Health Action alongside Kind Clinic, and we continue expanding access to affirming healthcare. If you have the means right now, a gift of any amount makes a difference.
From all of us at Texas Health Action and Kind Clinic, we wish you a safe holiday season and a very Happy New Year!
