I have had such a great experience both volunteering and rotating at San Jose Clinic over the last year. I had such a warm welcome from the first time I volunteered and the staff went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed to treat patients. I worked in several community health clinics and this clinic is one of the most organized I have seen this far. The patients were truly appreciative and I look forward to many more years of volunteering.

I have been volunteering at San Jose Clinic since April 2012. Along with the priceless education received, I have developed valuable relationships with the staff, other volunteers, and students. Everyone, including patients, greet me with a warm, friendly smile. Our security officer offers hugs to anyone and everyone. You would never know if she has ever had a bad day in her life. In conclusion: On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being the highest..Everyone in every department has a rating of 11. It is a privilege to volunteer at San jose Clinic....NMoore

A few years ago my mother lost her medical insurance and was in need of medical help.
After some online research, we were blessed to find San Jose Clinic. At the time I was in nursing school. The exceptional care she received left such a beautiful impression on me that I felt a desire to volunteer once I became a licensed registered nurse. The staff at San Jose goes above and beyond to provide medical services with a humble and caring heart.

This spring I volunteered to help with the Easter Party thru the Co-Catherdral Catholic Church and it was an amazing experience. The staff at San Jose was extremely nice and very well organized. We brought our own materials so there was no additional cost by the Clinic. The whole event was volunteered and they had a really cool 2 teen band (sisters) who played for all of us. The happy faces on the children was so wonderful to see, you could tell they enjoyed the games, easter baskets and entertainment. I plan to volunteer again next year.

I was a volunteer at the San Jose Clinic for over a year. Everyone I met was very devoted to the mission and showed genuine concern for the patients. I also saw minimal waste; it is a very well-run charity where money is put to good use.

San Jose Clinic does an outstanding job providing essential care for those that need it most. Without their benevolent services, many people without healthcare would have nowhere else to turn.

I had the opportunity to volunteer here for a while and found this experience extremely rewarding. As a physician, I am well aware of the hardships encountered by those without insurance who are in desperate need of health care. I was very happy to be able to work with such a phenomenal organization in getting some of those needs met.

The San Jose Clinic is an imortant safety net for those in the Houston area who might otherwise be without healthcare at all. And it does it all in a caring fashion, in a wonderful new facility and always respecting the dignity of each person served.
