Happy New Year!
2019 will mark the 19th anniversary of the NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation. Thanks to the leadership and vision of the physicians of the NEA Baptist Clinic, our foundation was started as a way to provide help for unmet needs in the community in which theses doctors served and lived. Starting with the Medicine Assistance Program, the foundation has grown over the past 19 years with the addition of five additional programs: HopeCircle, Center for Healthy Children, WellnessWorks!, ShareHope, and Center for Good Grief. Each of these programs has a unique mission and is led by people with a passion for helping others. Over the almost two decades of serving the community, the NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation has been able to help tens of thousands of individuals through these free programs.
In 2018, we launched this new website as a way to allow easier access to information and services provided by each of our six programs. We wanted a simple and streamlined way for people to learn about the foundation, our programs, and to partner with us in providing help to the community through donations. As we embark on 2019, we want to add to this new online resource by launching our foundation blog. Through our blog, it is our goal to make this page an extension of our mission by providing useful and timely information that relates to one of our six programs.
Additionally, we would like to share the stories of people whose have been helped by one of our six programs. Many individuals and organizations have generously given to support the NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation and have come alongside us to impact the lives of many. If you have a story you want to share or need information, please feel free to contact me. We want you to know who we are and how we impact lives every day.
2019 will no doubt fly past us as quickly as 2018. Before we are too far down the road, please allow me to wish you a happy new year! On behalf of the NEA Baptist Charitable Foundation, I hope you and your family have a wonderful 2019.
