NOFHA fulfills an important need in the community. It provides a place for the uninsured workers in the New Orleans community to receive primary health care. Additionally, the organization has staff members who are fluent in Spanish to help those workers who do not speak English.

The New Orleans Faith Health Alliance is bringing an invaluable service to our community by meeting the health related needs of uninsured working adults. Their medical staff are providing these hard working adults with much needed regular health care services and serving as their medical provider home. This ensures that the uninsured no longer must use hospital emergency rooms as their place of first resort and can now receive the much more cost effective, preventive health care that they need and want.

The Great!

I am honored to be involved with an organization that offers faith based comprehensive health care to the working uninsured and their families. These are the people who work so hard and yet often "fall btween the cracks." This program offers them a "helping hand," not a handout.What impresses me most about the program is that it is a project of, for and by the faith, health and business communities. It receives no federal or state funding. It offers a medical home for patients, as well as continuity of care and the staff support and education to empower patients to care for themselves and develop/maintain a healthy lifestyle.

The Great!

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

seeing the patients who have received services and their level of satisfaction at how they were treated and the extent of the care they received.

Shortly after moving to New Orleans I discovered the NOFHA. I was immediately impressed with the vision and professionalism of all those involved. In a little over a year I have watched this organization grow and excite many people in the community.

New Orleans Faith Health Alliance (NOFHA) is a much needed Health Center established for the working uninsured - a very underserved group. Our cliets often earn too much for federal assistance, yet too little to purchase health insurance. One of the best aspects of our model of care is the health coaching. It offers "Health, Hope and Healing".

The Great!

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

meeting with and talking to some of the clients and hearing their stories. Also, serving on the Board and working with the wonderful staff, I have developed a real appreciation for all that they ofer to the uninsured in our community.

In the aftermath of Katrina, New Orleans lost its primary healthcare facility for those without health insurance. Though there are plans to rebuild the facility, it has yet to be done. Because of the vision and compassion of healthcare professionals who saw the need of many who could not afford the ever-expensive health insurance, yet could benefit from a holistic approach to staying healthy, New Orleans Faith Health Alliance was born. It comes at an ironic time that our nation is debating healthcare reform. Though many of these massive changes will not be implemented for years, this clinic is offering services now. It is a wonderful partnership with the faith community and healthcare professionals whose primary mission is to care for those in need.

The Great!

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

the summer interns that my congregation is supporting and having work at the clinic.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the unique approach to providing quality healthcare to those left vulnerable in our society.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

compassionate and wonderful.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

be the model for affordable and quality healthcare for all. It could offer services not available to those without healthcare that would be better managed than the proposed government-run health care system.

It is a great pleasure to work with such dedicated people. Their passion for the common well-being is essential to the recovery and survival of our city. Their unconditional support and service prove their commitment to helping the working uninsured and their families receive affordable and quality health care. There are not enough words to express how influential and beneficial their impact on the community has been; especially the Spanish-speaking community. On behalf of everyone in our program, we want to sincerely thank NOFHA for the unwavering efforts to make New Orleans a healthier and happier place, one patient at a time.

This is an amazing operation. It is the only clinic in the New Orleans area that serves exclusively the working uninsured. It does so only with donations, modest fees from the clients, and grants. NOFHA does not accept federal funds because it enrolls only people who are working and do not have health insurance. NOFHA emphasizes patient responsibility and helps the patient (and the health worker volunteers) realize the contribution spirituality and life style make to health. It is a beautiful example of the way health can should be offered in any country.

In a city where health care is scarce for the uninsured and low socio-economic population, NOFHA is one of the places people can go and get quality care. Their program encourages healthy/wellness practices and health education in addition to the provision of services in an accepting and caring atmosphere. They provide services in Spanish as well as English, serving a growing population in the city. Their staff is knowledgable, considerate, and professional. We have openly shared information between our organizations to improve access, processes and services.

The Great!

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

the form of referrals to their services, by partnering with them when they needed space to practice, through trainings and through collaborating regarding the care of clients depression/PTSD.
