Our Community Need

The need in our service area is great. Many do not live in an area with ready access to health care services. Many do not have insurance. Many live below the poverty level. Many encounter barriers to services treatment such as transportation, language, and lack of awareness.

Every four years, Komen Lubbock Area analyzes several aspects of the service area.

  • Qualitative Data
  • Quantitative Data
  • Health Services
  • Public Health Policies

The result is the Community profile, which serves as our guide for evaluating grants and developing our mission action plan.

Please note: Susan G. Komen® is not a direct service provider. We do not provide funds directly to individuals for screening or treatment, nor do we make referrals or determine who is eligible for screening and treatment.
