Morris County Organization for Hispanic Affairs: NJHI -- Enhancing community agency's capacity

The Foundation's program, New Jersey Health Initiatives, was designed to support projects in New Jersey that develop new approaches to resolving the state's health care needs, focusing on the Foundation's goal areas.The purpose of this project is to strengthen Morris County Organization of Hispanic Affairs, Inc., (MCOHA) organizational capacity by first reconfirming and prioritizing their capacity needs through a comprehensive organizational assessment, and then supporting the development and implementation of a strategy to strengthen their organizational operations. Deliverables include completion of the organizational assessment, development and implementation of a capacity enhancement strategy, and reports documenting progress toward the strategy's implementation. Prior to strategy implementation, a revised work plan and budget revision will be submitted for the second phase of funding.MCOHA has served the Hispanic and low-income community of Morris County (primarily Dover and Morristown), for 35 years and has a $2.5 million annual operating budget. Focused on client advocacy and outreach, community transportation, education initiatives, and weatherization/low-income home energy services, MCOHA has been recognized as the voice of the Hispanic community and, in particular, the ever changing immigrant communities of Morris County as well.
