2020 Funding Source
Without the generous support of the Alliance Healthcare Foundation, PHA's 2020 operations would not have been possible.
In December of 2019, we were ecstatic to learn that the Alliance Healthcare Foundation donated $25,000.00 to support our mission. However, with COVID unknowingly around the corner, we could have never guessed how essential this donation would end up being.
As a small non-profit, we are genuinely grateful for every dollar given to us. Typically we have several different funding sources (grants, fundraising events, donations) that allow us to provide the free community services and resources the San Diego perinatal population depends on. Sadly, when the COVID-19 pandemic interrupted life as we knew it, much of our reliable funding understandably vanished, while the need for our services and mission exponentially grew.
Had it not been for the Alliance Healthcare Foundation's donation, we would have had to let go of our part-time program manager who provides tremendous support to our volunteer Board and warmlines volunteers. This list of funds would have had a tragic impact on our warmline and overall operations, as our volunteer Board and Warmline Volunteers were also juggling the pandemics relentless implications on their own lives and family circumstances.
Thankfully, we did have the Alliance Healthcare Foundation's donation, and despite the hardships, we have been able to remain a trusted and reliable source of perinatal support for San Diego individuals and providers. Additionally, as a result of the Alliance donation protecting the health of our organization, we've been able to update, re-design, and transform our PMADs 101 training into an online course. In doing so, we believe we will be able to exponentially expand our reach and support with community organizations and businesses throughout San Diego. Specifically, we anticipate this online training will go a long way in educating providers that work with at-risk, underserved populations that are typically unable to receive specialized perinatal care.
