Review for Healthfinders Collaborative Inc, Northfield, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I first learned about HealthFinders through a story in the Northfield News. While I am blessed to have excellent health insurance, many residents of Northfield, Faribault and the surrounding area are not so lucky: they may be unemployed, lack health insurance because they only work part time, or they lack the language skills to navigate the paperwork to qualify for service. We made a financial contribution to the organization to help keep the clinic open. As a recently retired fundraiser at a local college, I responded to a call for volunteers with fundraising experience. While I am not a doctor, nurse or translator, through my work on the board I am helping to provide much needed health care services and education to families and individuals who in turn contribute to our community in many ways. HealthFinders has made a huge difference to the people of Rice County - and to me!

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

the recent development of a long range fundraising plan that will help insure the continued viability of HealthFinders.

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

feeling like I am making a difference for my neighbors.

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

the best!

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

be open more than 2 nights per week, serve more clients, expand to include dental, mental health, and other areas, and improve the overall health of Rice County residents.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

Role:  Board Member & Quality health care is available to my uninsured and underinsured neighbors in Rice County through HealfhFinders. I help them raise money to purchase medications, keep the clinic open, and provide much needed health care service and education.
