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 am the pastor of First Grace UMC which houses NOFHA. I have seen it come into fruition in the most glorious, dedicated fashion. And, most importantly, I am a witness to the effect NOFHA is having in our city and in the lives of New Orleanians. the clinic staff is caring and professional. the clinic itself is spectacular and clean and warm. every doctors office should look so good.

Although I've not had the opportunity to directly serve through this organization, I have been able to make suggestions about several facets of their services. This organization fills a much needed void in medical services delivery in this community. They not only provide health services but also help their clients with emotional and spiritual needs.

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.

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.

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.
