Natural disasters often bring awareness to the community. In 2017, Hurricane Harvey shook the Texas and Louisiana coasts. This catastrophic event brought up many conversations within the HOPE Clinic organization regarding how they could be better prepared for such emergencies and provide community support all year long. This session will focus on how the leadership looked beyond the clinic walls and designed a resilient new HOPE Clinic facility. You will learn about embracing a diverse community by expanding the traditional clinic environment. Additionally, you will hear about critical design decisions made to ensure the facility is equipped no matter the emergency.


1. How to design to respond to diversity
2. How to design a resilient facility
3. How to capitalize a facilities program to become an economic catalyst in the community
4. How to embrace community and create a welcoming and flexible multi-purpose clinic
