IIn my post-Katrina work in New Orleans I have encountered many residents who although holding steady jobs, cannot afford health insurance. New Orleans Faith Health Alliance is literally a prayer answered for these folks. The fact that NOFHA is committed to treatment that affects the patient in both body and spirit makes it an extraordinary and unique resource in our troubled area. Executive Director, Luanne Francis contacted our non-profit, Interfaith Works, to help establish connections with as many faith communities, large and small, as possible, to spread the word that NOFHA is open and available to all. She let us know that it is a priority to reach those who might otherwise be overlooked. We are delighted to be cooperating with NOFHA and we are grateful that they are here.
