Tomball Regional Health Foundation (TRHF) is proud to announce the partnership with Tomball Emergency Assistance Ministries (TEAM) to provide emergency dental services to qualifying adults and seniors and medical care to low-income families, in the Tomball, Magnolia, and Waller areas. Both the dental and the medical program will receive $50,000 for the coming funding year.
During the course of 2018 dental grant the funds allowed TEAM to cover the expenses of emergency dental services for 47 adult or senior clients at an average cost of $830. The goal of both organizations is to not only alleviate the pain and suffering caused by tooth decay and infection, but to also prevent oral diseases from developing into more serious health complications. The renewed grant will go a long way to help the men and women in the area.
These grants allow TEAM a broader offering to serve the needs of low-income families in the Tomball community. TEAM Executive Director Barry Hart expresses a large measure of appreciation to the Tomball Regional Health Foundation for their ongoing support of TEAM’s mission. “TRHF is honored to provide funding for the dental and medical services to the men and women in the greater Tomball, Magnolia and Waller communities to assure prevention of tooth decay, oral disease and the overall health of the members in our community,” according to Lynn LeBouef, TRHF CEO.
TEAM also provides financial and food assistance to lower-income Tomball-area residents who are experiencing an unusual shortfall in meeting their living expenses, or have an emergency family event that they are not able to cover. With the help of local churches and businesses participating in the Tomball Benevolence Network, TEAM is also able to provide other services such as emergency auto repair or plumbing in the event that TEAM clients have such a need.
