COASTAL BEND WELLNESS FOUNDATION

Healthcare Programs

Due to low rates of insurance coverage, discrimination, and a lack of cultural competency in the health care system, LGBTQIA+ people are at a higher risk for cancer, mental illnesses, and are more likely to smoke, abuse alcohol and drugs, and engage in other risky behaviors. Barriers to care often delay treatment until a condition is extremely difficult or even impossible to manage or cure.

By removing barriers to health services and closing the gap of disparities LGTBQIA+ persons face in receiving care, the Coastal Bend PRIDE Center and Coastal Bend Wellness Foundation programs can improve health outcomes for our loved ones and our community. CBWF is dedicated to providing the best health and wellness services that are sensitive to the unique needs of the LGBTQIA+ community.

Services are available and affordable to everyone, with some services provided based on a sliding fee scale.

Programs for LGBTQIA+ include the following:

  • Ryan White Case Management and Support Services for People Living with HIV
  • Case Management and Support Services for coming out, transitioning, behavioral services

Questions may be directed to the Coastal Bend Wellness Foundation by calling call 361-814-2001.
