Con Alma Health Foundation partnered with the Sancre Productions team to create four short videos that illustrate how our grants improve the lives of people living in New Mexico. These compelling videos show how four nonprofits used our multi-year grants (three year grants ending in 2017) to help people access health care, protect the confidentiality of adolescent health care and support community health workers to help those in need.

We are proud to highlight the work of the following nonprofits:

 

New Mexico Alliance for School-Based Health Care ($150,000) towards Improving Access to and Confidentiality of Sensitive Services for Adolescents and Others, a coordinated network of more than 120 members and governmental agencies advocating for changing the policies and practices of commercial health-insurance companies to protect the confidentiality of adolescent health care

 

New Mexico Center on Law and Poverty ($150,000) to the New Mexico Healthcare Access Project, ensuring that low-income individuals have access by removing barriers to enrolling, accessing or renewing Medicaid or Exchange coverage; addressing coverage gaps in healthcare; and promoting healthcare coverage and services for low-income Native American children and families

 

New Mexico Community Health Worker Association ($150,000) towards Bridging the Health Equity Gap, a collaborative approach for recruiting, training, and mentoring lead health workers with certification and grandfathering efforts of the 2014 Community Health Worker Act while seeking innovative credentialing opportunities with community colleges and others

 

Vision for Dignity, Access, and Accountability (VIDA) in Healthcare ($150,000) towards establishing a Bernalillo County Health Safety Net for those who remain uninsured and without access to affordable healthcare services by working with organizations in Albuquerque’s South Valley on coalition building and public education on the need to expand access
