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

helping to get it started.

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

meeting and working with so many wonderful people on such a needed project.

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

amazing to work with. I had a great time working with all of them.

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

expand to help even more people. Maybe open a second site to help people in other areas.

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

Definitely felt the effects of volunteering and seeing something you do help those in need. Without my help, these types of organizations would not exist.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

None

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

knowing I helped

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

very pleasant to work with and very excited to help those individuals in the community that needed to be seen.

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

help a lot of people receive the medical treatment that they need.

Ways to make it better...

None. I did what I was there to do. And there are not IF's on my experience reflections.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

none foreseen.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Good Luck to the team of representatives who will be assisting the community. And GOD BLESS YOU.

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.

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

Not at this point in time..

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.

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

Observation of their operation.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

No comment.

Lack of sufficient financial support.

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.

For several days, I worked closely with this staff and clinic to get it up and running in an efficient manner. This clinic adheres to their principles of hard work, compassion, and service.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would help this agency with the funds necessary so that no client is turned away and all the resources that will encourage this clinic to run will be provided.

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

The staff and the mission of the clinic. At no time have I ever encountered more compassionate and qualified staff.

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

Nurses, admins, and others.

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

Serve a wide range of clients throughout the New Orleans area. The community of New Orleans would benefit from the health care services of this clinic especially since they have encountered such trauma and continue to do so.

Ways to make it better...

N/A

Need for funding.

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.

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

meeting with the CEO and director of nursing. Both are impressive people.
