Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Community Clinics, Health, Hospitals

Mission: To provide quality, affordable primary care to working uninsured and their families.

Geographic areas served: Greater New Orleans Area

Programs: Provide affordable healthcare services to working uninsured individuals and families in greater new orleans. In addition to providing primary care services, the organization provides health coaching/nutrition education to all patients. However, those who are diabetic or hypertensive are strongly encouraged and recommended to work with the health coach/nutrition educator to develop an individual health plan. We logged over 1,000 visits in 2012 and continued to provide individual support to all patients making lifestyle changes for improved health. 100% of the hypertensive patients that worked with the health coach/nutrition educator improved their blood pressure over the year. The organization also provides blood pressure screenings, flu vaccines and health education in the community at health fairs, schools and in the workplace.

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.

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.

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.

I have been a volunteer for the past year for NOFHA. This non-profit organization is providing much needed affordable health care for uninsured workers. There has been an impressive response to this worthy cause from our community but more financial support needed to service more needy people. This competent and dedicated organization should be backed with the necessities that would allow it to grow and, in turn, allow our community to prosper.

This clinic has hard working staff that dedicate their lives to the increased enrichment of the individual and their communities. Culturally competent, medically sound, and full of heart, they provide the best wrap-around service in the area. The nurses and staff were some of the most dedicated medical teams I have ever encountered.

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.
