Our Mission

The Breath of Life Children’s Center clinic is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that administers healthcare to uninsured/underinsured children in the West Houston and Katy, Texas areas.


G. Denise Owen founded the Breath of Life Children’s Center in 1999, in response to the limited resources available to children of uninsured/underinsured parent(s) residing in the West Houston and Katy areas.  Ms. Owen, an L.V.N has over 30 years of experience in the healthcare industry.  

The concept of a children’s clinic in the west area of Harris County came from a need described by several parents, whose children had no identifiable medical care provider or means of appropriate care. The growing number of uninsured/underinsured children appeared to mirror the population growth and expansion of the West Houston and Katy areas. 

 Ms. Owen’s strong Christian beliefs have given her the strength, dedication and commitment to area children of our community. She continues to believe that children should not suffer due to a family’s financial hardship.  


Since inception, the goal of the Center has been to provide children with an improved quality of life through easily accessible healthcare and guidance.
