Lifesavers Foundation

A nonprofit organization

A staggering 1.5 million children live in poverty in Texas. Around 155,000 of those children live in Dallas County and 50,000 qualify as living in extreme poverty, defined as a family of four living on $14,000 or less a year. 

  • Single mothers in Dallas are twice as likely to live at or below the poverty line as single fathers. One-third of Dallas children live with a single mother.
  • 43 percent of Dallas residents speak a language other than English.
  • One-fifth of the nation’s uninsured children live in Texas. 

The need is overwhelming! Our goal is to conduct 8,000 free patient visits annually!

Our Needs

1. The Foundation seeks ongoing funding to support its mobile pediatric clinics, The Doctor Spot. The units provide free healthcare services for Dallas County children ages 0-18 years who either have no insurance or who are underinsured. Services include sick and well checks; immunizations; sports physicals; asthma management; vision, hearing, lead, and obesity screenings; lab fees, prescriptions, and x-rays. 

2. The Foundation seeks ongoing funding to support its mobile sonogram unit to provide free pregnancy testing sonograms, counseling, Medicaid enrollment assistance and referrals to underserved women who are unable to pay for these services on their own.

3. We welcome in-kind donations of furniture, home accessories, clothing, jewelry, shoes, etc. at the LifeSavers Upscale Resale store, 561 W. Campbell Road, Suite 101, Richardson, TX 75080 from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Mondays - Saturdays. To arrange furniture pickup call 972-669-9000.

Our work is made possible by your generosity, which provides the much-needed funding that enables The Doctor Spot to provide high-quality medical care to children in underserved areas of Dallas County. 

If you want to make a major contribution please contact our CEO, Bill Denton, at to discuss the impact your gift can have.


LifeSavers Foundation is a 501(c)(3) serving those in need by providing free mobile medical services for women and children. Additionally, we serve, and the community at large, with goods from our resale store. LifeSavers Foundation is a faith-based non-profit organization. Its project, The Doctor Spot ("TDS"), is an economical way to provide free medical treatment to its target patients---uninsured and underinsured children. TDS is providing a hub of medical services in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area; an area plagued with a shortage of both primary care and specialist physicians. Since it is not bound by a physical address or a brick-and-mortar facility, any site it visits automatically serves as a pediatric clinic. Uninsured children are up to four times less likely to have a regular medical home and are more likely to die from health-related problems than those with insurance. "The need for reliable transportation is particularly important for low-income families, who not only lack resources but may also be physically alienated from both transportation and health services.". (Beyond ABC).
