IIn my post-Katrina work in New Orleans I have encountered many residents who although holding steady jobs, cannot afford health insurance. New Orleans Faith Health Alliance is literally a prayer answered for these folks. The fact that NOFHA is committed to treatment that affects the patient in both body and spirit makes it an extraordinary and unique resource in our troubled area. Executive Director, Luanne Francis contacted our non-profit, Interfaith Works, to help establish connections with as many faith communities, large and small, as possible, to spread the word that NOFHA is open and available to all. She let us know that it is a priority to reach those who might otherwise be overlooked. We are delighted to be cooperating with NOFHA and we are grateful that they are here.

I manage a hospital outpatient diabetes center in New Orleans and appreciate the medical home NOFHA will provide uninsured workers who have diabetes. Diabetes care is largely self care, and a lack of health insurance should not prevent someone from achieving and maintaing tight blood sugar control. I am impressed with the passion of everyone I have met associated with NOFHA and look forward to working with them.

New Orleans Faith Health Alliance is a wonderful clinic that has identified a desperately under-served patient population and is working intensely to meet the need. The rebuilding effort in New Orleans as well as the culture that is so essential to the vibrancy of my city is dependent upon many of NOFHA's patients: the artists with no steady job, the undocumented labor force, the part-time dishwashers. These are the unsung heroes that make New Orleans the world-renowned icon of fun and festival: the overworked and uninsured.

The Great!

As New Orleans faces more budget cuts for community health care, the New Orleans Faith Health Alliance organization is providing critical care to those most in need in the community. By providing cost-effective primary health care the city’s working uninsured population, NOFHA is leading the way in helping members of our community to improve their health and way of living. Their work ensures that our emergency rooms are not overrun and helps to create effective long-term results for the needs of the city.

NOFHA focuses on the short and, more importantly, the long-term needs of underserved community members. As an educator, I find this organization a helpful resource to supply necessary medical information.

I am writing in support of The New Orleans Faith Health Alliance’s (NOFHA). Kaiser Permanente is proud to have been an early corporate supporter of NOFHA. We committed $300,000 over three years to help them with start-up costs. We were attracted to their innovative model to provide affordable coverage and care, as well as their deep commitment to collaboration and community service. In addition to financial support, Kaiser Permanente has shared our health education materials in various languages (our members speak over 120 languages) and have provided pro bono technical assistance in the design of the clinic, sharing what we’ve learned about patient flow, electronic medical record management, efficient use of space, patient privacy, etc. After Hurricane Katrina, we pledged to help communities affected by the storm to recover and rebuild, with a focus on health. Our support of NOFHA is part of that pledge. Each year since 2007, Kaiser Permanente has also sponsored two community service trips per year for 60 of our employees who are helping to rebuild in the Greater New Orleans and Mississippi Gulf Coast areas. One of last year’s teams enthusiastically assisted in the demolition of the former administrative space in the church property, so that the new NOFHA clinic could be realized.

What a novel but necessary approach to helping the needy. Not those that are unwilling to help themselves but rather those that, in spite of their hard work and effort, are in need of assistance. I was first introduced to this project by a Bd member, and after attending their open house, at her request, was impressed with the concept and the dedication of the participants. With sufficient funding this program will fill a void that currently exists in our health care/insurance system and will afford the needy employed with the comfort of care that all Americans deserve. If I were to change anything about this organization it would be its lack of public awareness.

The NOFHA partially fills a huge health care void in the post Katrina New Orleans community. The so called "working poor" who cannot afford a regular health care insurance policy are NOFHA clients, and the professionals at NOFHA do an outstanding job of meeting their needs.
