When all six phases are completed, the Serve Denton Center will be the second largest health and human services center in the state of Texas, second to Haven for Hope in San Antonio, TX, and will fill more than 77,000 square feet of space on 4.8 acres.

Once the Serve Denton Center is at full capacity, it is projected that 16,414 people will be served in the first year.

Health Services of North Texas will add three primary providers and a total of 18 staff to operate the clinic. More importantly, it will put affordable medical care in the same neighborhood as the majority of their clients—reducing another barrier to medical care.

Advocacy Center

Denton Community Food Center will be able to distribute over 300 tons of food through this new facility. This amount of food represents a 15 percent increase over the amount given in 2017.

In other words, they will be able to give away over 20,000 grocery bags worth of food to families in need—and those families will be able to choose the food they want.
