Welcome to Ubi Caritas Health Ministries

Ubi Caritas is a truly unique ministry for our community. Ubi has provided healthcare to the uninsured since 1998. Now in partnership with Legacy Community Health Center we have expanded our original Family Medical Clinic to become a full featured medical provider in the Beaumont area dedicated exclusively to serving the uninsured and under-insured.

More than 38,000—one in every three—people in Beaumont/Jefferson County area lack health insurance.The demand for low-cost care in this area is consistently greater than available community resources. Primary healthcare for the uninsured is grossly inadequate, and specialty care is almost non-existent. Ubi Caritas via its Partnership of Caring programs is providing an accessible option for many to receive affordable primary health care and health educations. All programs and classes offered through our programs are designed specifically to create transformative, healthy, life-affirming changes in the lives of patients by promoting healing and wholeness in mind, body, and spirit.

We invite you to join us in this effort to improve the quality of life for not just a few but for everyone in our community.
