To support the costs of medications, preventative supplies, health monitoring devices, and vaccines (2019) and to support the purchase of a patient transportation vehicle and to install COVID-19 protective barriers in the organization’s current fleet of vehicles (2020). Photo provided by grantee.

Impact: “We purchased this vehicle in February 2020, before the COVID pandemic hit. Its initial purpose was a farmworker patient transportation vehicle to assist in helping people get to their medical appointments. However, when the pandemic happened, Vecinos was not able to provide patient transportation at the same level. We also began a bilingual COVID Community Health Worker team in June 2020. Since then, this vehicle has served not only the farmworker health team, but has also been the preferred vehicle for COVID outreach. It has been used to provide services to the community ranging from network building to health education to COVID vaccines. The purchase of this vehicle has been elemental in having reliable, safe transportation for our COVID team that is doing critical COVID vaccine equity work in the region.”

To provide support for veterans of the U.S. Armed Forces in need of dental care.

Impact: "Funds received from Nantahala Health foundation were used during the preparation for, day of, and subsequent dental care for the 30 veterans. Each of the veterans had a preparatory exam and x-rays to determine what care would be appropriate. Most veterans also had follow-up procedures, including tooth extractions and fittings for partial or full dentures."
