Ribbon Cutting with Dorothy Flores and R

The mission of the Agape Clinic is to provide quality healthcare services unconditionally to underserved people.  Dr. Barbara Baxter, Founder & Medical Director, envisioned a community clinic where people with limited access to healthcare could receive free medical services.


The Agape Clinic (Agape) opened its doors in 1983 in a basement closet of Grace United Methodist Church, providing free healthcare on Saturdays.  Initially, about half of the visits were for urgent medical events, and the other half were for vaccines. At this time, Agape was the only clinic providing childhood vaccinations through the Dallas County Health Department on Saturdays.  

In 2000, through strategic partnerships with organizations like Dallas County Health, LabCorp, Americares, Direct Relief, and Baylor Community Care, Agape soon blossomed into a four-day week clinic, significantly expanding its reach and impact on the community.

In October 2015, Agape purchased a new clinic building across the street from Grace United Methodist Church, allowing Agape to offer extended care services six days a week. The 10,000-square-foot clinic building includes 13 medical examination rooms, seven fully equipped dental suites, and a multipurpose medical space. In 2017, Agape expanded healthcare access seven days a week and offered refugee care on Sunday afternoons.


Agape Clinic has evolved its healthcare model to provide comprehensive, family-centered, integrated care in 2021, starting with comprehensive women’s healthcare. In 2022, Agape expanded its services to include pediatric care and renovated its multipurpose space into a dedicated pediatric and integrated family healthcare patient area. By the summer of 2024, Agape will be able to provide comprehensive dental services, thanks to the generous support of an Anonymous Family Foundation. This expansion of services will complete the holistic Agape Clinic Health Home, which includes medical, behavioral health, pediatrics, and complete dental services, ensuring that all aspects of a patient's health are cared for without barriers.
