NOFHA fulfills a distinct need in our community - affordable primary health care for the working uninsured, by a caring staff that follows up with the patient and teaches healthy lifestyles. The staff and volunteers are dedicated to the mission and passionate about their work.

I was sold on the concept of NOFHA from the day I heard of the concept - a provider of affordable health care for those who are employed, but not able to afford health insurance. More important to me was the idea of integrating physical, emotional and spiritual health. NOFHA not only treats illness, but teaches health and wellness and asks its patients to take responisibilty for managing their own health. It has been very fulfilling to watch NOFHA grow from mere concept, to a fully operational clinic, but we need financial support to continue our mission!

New Orleans needs places that provide primary health care such as help with diabetes, hypertension and other chronic health problems and since Hurricane Katrina many primary clinics were lost. New Orleans is still trying to rebuild and NOFAH provides this care to those who work but do not have health insurance. It is helping so many people and could do so much more with more financial help and volunteer health professionals. NOFAH is a great organization and is trying to grow to meet more people's needs.

I was also part of the Kaiser Permanente group that worked on the initial stages of this project. I lived in New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina and know first hand how much help the people and city of New Orleans needs. So many people need help with getting the proper healthcare. I am proud to have been a part of this project. It will be very successful and help many people and nothing makes me happier then helping to make others smile and feel good.

As a community heatlh worker, I encounter individuals on a regular basis who are employed but have no health insurance. It is agreat comfort to know that there is a resource available for these individuals that will provide care not just for their physical health, but their emotional and spiritual well-being also.

The Faith Health Alliance is a mix of imagination and radical new ideas in healthcare. It is a holistic approach to health care. Their dream isn’t just to take blood and labs and do checkups, but help change lifestyles: instead of sa8ing ‘you need to eat better’ they want to say ‘come to our kitchen so we can show you haw to cook a healthy meal. Instead of saying ‘you need to lose weight’ they want to say ‘here is a pass to our gym and an appt with a fitness counselor, let us help you lose weight with exercise.’ It’s a new approach and I’m glad I could be at the opening and that I know some of the staff.

I was part of Kaiser Permanente's team of individuals who came with Hands On to do the initial preparation of the organization. Meeting with other volunteers as we worked to paint and move furniture was exciting. It was great to see the pictures of the ribbon cutting from our homes and know that we were a part of the process for that building opening. We had a hand on a very positive piece of New Orleans healthcare re-establishment.

I helped with some of the initial preparation of the space while working with colleagues from Kaiser Permanente through Hands On New Orleans. I lived in NOLA for 10 years prior to Katrina and know first hand how many folks can benefit from a project like this. I whole heartedly endorse the project, the process used by the project and have no question that it will have a significant impact for those individuals lucke enough to be served by the New Orleans Faith Health Alliance.

The staff and volunteers of NOFHA are the kind of people who dedicate their lives to the service of others. They do what we are all called to do - to be stewards of humanity, giving selflessly to the total well-being of others. NOHFA, if allowed to grow and flourish, can be a place of support and comfort to those patients who work tirelessly without the benefits of healthcare. It is a place that can give them a bit of ease when it comes to their health and enable then to take ownership of their whole well-being.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

...witnessing the gathering of people who believe so deeply in its cause, especially those who have already been blessed by its service.

NOFHA serves working people without insurance. The staff are caring professionals who see their clients as multifaceted individuals with physical, mental and spiritual needs. They help them to understand and take control of their health along all of these dimensions. It is inspiring to see how their faith illuminates their mission.
