Special Health Resources for Texas began as AIDS Inc, the community response to the AIDS epidemic in the 1980s. Initially, AIDS Inc. provided social support to HIV positive individuals and their families. However, the organization quickly assumed a leading role in providing medical care, emergency assistance and case management, and other supportive services to HIV positive individuals across 23 counties of northeast Texas. The original name was changed to Special Health Resources for Texas, Inc. to reflect its broadened mission and services.
Over the past two decades, SHR has grown into a comprehensive health care system in East Texas, providing affordable care for the whole family. With clinics in Longview, Tyler, Paris, Texarkana, and Jacksonville. Additionally, we have our INTUNE Mobile Unit to serve rural areas, SHR now provides health care to families in all 23 East Texas counties. SHR is a FQHC (Federally Qualified Health Clinic), offering patients a full-range of services, including both adult and pediatric primary care, adult and pediatric dental care, women’s health services, immunizations and vaccinations, HIV/AIDS screening and treatment, mental health care, and substance abuse services.
