What are some of the challenges we face?

  • Currently, access to subspecialty care for uninsured refugee children is extremely difficult in the Greater New Orleans area, especially given recent funding cuts to certain community organizations and healthcare institutions. We have many children that need sub-specialty pediatric care but cannot be given referrals.
  • We are only reaching a fraction of the children that need care
  • Affordable referral locations for basic services (dentistry, mental health services, etc) are few, or else they are overloaded with patients
