About Us

As a full-service, Federally Qualified Health Center, Legacy identifies unmet needs and gaps in health-related services and develops client-centered programs to address those needs. A United Way-affiliated agency since 1990, we currently provide adult primary care, pediatrics, dental care, vision services, behavioral health services, OB/GYN and maternity, vaccinations and immunizations, health promotion and community outreach, wellness and nutrition, and comprehensive HIV/AIDS care.

Legacy was formed in 2005 as a result of the merger of two leading Houston area community organizations—Montrose Clinic and The Assistance Fund—that had both been providing Houston and the Harris County area with quality health care and medication services for nearly 30 years.

Legacy’s strong reputation fueled significant growth in the mid to late 2000s. The City of Houston awarded Legacy the opportunity to open a satellite location at 5602 Lyons Avenue in 2006, in part because of our reputation for quality health care and fiscal prudence. Legacy now occupies the entire building, providing health care and social services to any and all Houstonians with a focus on individuals and families living in the greater Fifth Ward.

In 2010, Legacy acquired the CHRISTUS Health clinic in Southwest Houston, a location that now sees more patients than any other Legacy location. Later in the same year, Legacy opened a clinic in Neighborhood Center’s Baker-Ripley complex. Thanks to these locations, Legacy is able to offer adult primary care, OB/GYN and maternity, pediatrics, dental care, vaccinations and immunizations, and behavioral health services to residents in the Gulfton area.

2012 saw Legacy branch out once again, opening campuses in medically underserved areas in Baytown and Beaumont. On September 1, Legacy took over clinical operations of both a long-standing behavioral health practice in Baytown, and a well-established pediatric practice in Beaumont.
