County’s work with Hope Clinic gets recognized

Ellis County was awarded the National Association of Counties Achievement Award at Monday’s meeting of the commissioner’s court for its work with Hope Clinic.
Ellis County has been working with Hope Clinic since 2005 to help the indigent residents of the county receive adequate and affordable healthcare, said Diana Buckley, director of communications for Ellis County.
Hope clinic offers services ranging from prenatal care and immunizations to dental services, x-rays, pharmacy and therapeutic optometry. It was established in Ellis County in 2000 as the Ellis County Coalition for Health Options.
Representing Hope Clinic at the meeting were Mackie Owens, executive director for Hope Clinic, and Jeff Kosoris, who serves on the clinic’s board and volunteers his time there as a dentist.
“We are pleased to be in partnership with Hope Clinic,” said County Judge Carol Bush. “It’s a worthy organization.”
Aaron Alarcon, of the Catholic Charities of Dallas, spoke to the commissioners and asked them for a letter of support to apply for a grant from the state. The grant is through the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs, and would fund a program to prevent homelessness.
