Dr. Duck Gives Back

At Urgent Care for Kids, our goal is to care for your children like they are our own and respect your time because we know it is limited. We strive to provide quality care for you and your children when it matters most. 

Another one of our passions is community involvement. Any way, shape, or form to get involved and serve the communities where our clinics are located is always an incredible experience. We recently partnered with two organizations to serve in Austin, Texas. The organizations we partnered with were STARRY and Texas Baptist Children’s Home

STARRY

“STARRY’s goal is to be a beacon of light for children, youth, and families in the midst of crisis, no matter how big or small. STARRY’s counselors, direct care workers, and case managers guide their clients and residents toward the hope of a better tomorrow. STARRY nurtures children, strengthens families, and restores hope by providing supportive services based on Christian values for children, youth, and families.”

Each foster child is required to have a “Life Book”. This book documents small and large moments in the child’s life and they will take it with them to every home. The goal is to build a foundation of happy memories for these children and to promote healing and stability in the midst of a tumultuous time. Several of our staff members spent a morning constructing these “Life Books”. With their creative gifts and unique ideas, together they brought to life different “Life Books” that will be used by a Foster Child in need.

Texas Baptist Children’s Home

“Texas Baptist Children’s Home embraces children and families in need in order to empower and equip them for a promising future. Children, and single mothers with their children, who come to TBCH are often lost, hurting, and hopeless, without a place to turn for help during their time of greatest need. Our residential programs provide a safe home and a stable family environment where they can learn, grow, and ultimately experience a happy, healthy future.”

Texas Baptist Children’s Home is in the backyard of our Round Rock Clinic and Urgent Care for Kids was happy to support the families there. We created a Cereal Box drive where our staff members and patients would drop off boxes of cereal for us to donate to TBCH. With summer around the corner, the growing boys and girls will be needing extra snacks! We successfully donated many boxes, and we look forward to working with them again soon!
