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.

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

I have seen people take responsibility for managing their chronic diseases by forming partnerships with the health providers.

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.

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.

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

friendly, professional, knowledgable

NOFHA provides a medical home for individuals who are working and uninsured in the Greater New Orleans area. NOFHA believes in treating the whole person- mind, body and spirit. The health coaching program that helps patients develop and implement wellness goals is one of the things that makes NOFHA unique.

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

The information that I hear from the staff and the patients on how health coaching has helped, has motivated me to be more in touch with my own health and not take it for granted.

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

The dedication of the staff to make sure all patients are treated with dignity and respect.

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

awesome! supportive and committed!

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

make a significant impact on the way health care is provided and the health status of the Greater New Orleans Community.

Directed towards the working uninsured, this is a great program for those who want to help themselves and willing to take responsibility for their lives and health. The model which includes a Health Coach to help the patinet understand and change unhealthy behavior that may cause major issues like high blood pressure or diabetes. All patients are treated with dignity and respect that encourages their sense of self worth and work ethic.

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

not as a patient, only as a volunteer

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

the patient responses and improved health outcomes.

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

genuinely concerned and commited to the mission.

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

have a major impact on the health care of a substantial protion of the new orleans work force which is currently without (and will remain that way for at least 4 years, even with the new health care bill)any health insurance or viable alternative.
