Indigenous Interpreting+

Monterey County is home to Mexican and Central American immigrants who previously lived in villages so isolated that they speak indigenous languages and very little to no Spanish. The Foundation and its donors developed the internationally-recognized Indigenous Interpreting+® program to help doctors, nurses, administrators and patients connect to improve care and speed healing.

“5 Steps to Prevent Diabetes” is a highly effective program that fosters healthy lifestyle behaviors through diet, physical activity and strategies for healthy eating on limited incomes. Donors have funded hundreds of 10-hour, hands-on training sessions for members of the local community. The program resulted in increased consumption of fruits and vegetables, increased daily physical activity, and increased use of shopping lists and meal planning to enable families to purchase healthier foods on a tight budget.

Adults

CHOICE, a program of Natividad's Trauma Center, is a violence prevention program designed to reduce retaliation and re-injury among victims of violence through case management and mentoring services.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Natividad Medical Foundation (NMF) is committed to philanthropically supporting Natividad Medical Center's programs and services with a special emphasis on vulnerable patients and families.

NMF's work over the past year has focused on ensuring all patients - including those with limited English proficiency - are able to effectively communicate with their healthcare providers and raising funds to support hospital-linked injury and violence intervention and prevention programs.

NMF is also committed to ensuring that all symptomatic women and men have access to mammography screening services; all under-insured, uninsured and uninsurable people living with HIV/AIDS in Monterey County have access to comprehensive primary care; all babies have the best start in life with the best "first food" (breast milk) and the support of high-quality, culturally appropriate parent education; teen mothers receive the support they need to become economically self-sufficient by developing life skills, completing their educations and gaining employment; and all low-income adults at risk for developing diabetes receive evidence-based diabetes prevention education and support.

NMF supports access to useful healthcare services for people with limited English proficiency by providing trained interpreters for indigenous languages from Mexico, such as Mixteco, Triqui, Zapotec and Chatino - four of the top seven most commonly spoken languages at Natividad Medical Center.

NMF continues to seek funds to support the implementation of injury and violence intervention and prevention programs through Natividad Medical Center's forthcoming (January 2015) Level II Trauma Center, including programs for youth that provide education and protective gear such as helmets and reflective clothing for bicyclists and pedestrians and programs designed to interrupt the cycle of violence and re-injury that often accompanies youth victims of violence who will be receiving care through the hospital's new Trauma Center. In addition, NMF seeks government grants to continue to support the Community Medicine rotation of the University of California, San Francisco-affiliated Natividad Family Medicine Residency Program.

NMF supports access to breast cancer screening services by annually raising funds to provide free mammograms for eligible women and men; access to comprehensive healthcare services for people living with HIV/AIDS by annually securing federal Ryan White Part C Early Intervention Services grant funds; Baby-Friendly practices to support lactation as the best feeding; access to diabetes prevention education for low income adults at risk for developing diabetes through the Community Foundation for Monterey County-funded 5 Steps to Prevent Diabetes - Cinco Pasos Para Prevenir la Diabetes program.

NMF has an established development team with a combined 40+ years of fundraising experience. NMF's team has the experience and skills needed to compete for and secure local, state and national foundation funds; local, state and national government grants; local, state and national corporate gifts; and individual major donor gifts;

Natividad Medical Foundation has expanded philanthropic support for Natividad Medical Center by 540% since 2006.

Indigenous Interpreting+ interns and interpreters provided more than 2,000 interpreting sessions for patients at Natividad Medical Center in 2020 and 2021; over 1,000 of those sessions were for indigenous languages.

Since the inception (2015), the CHOICE violence intervention and prevention program has been able to maintain a 1% to 2% re-injury rate, compared with the 5-year post-injury national average of 44% after five years. In 2021, over 1,500 individual client basic needs were met.

The 5 Steps to Prevent Diabetes Program has reached approximately 1,000 community members in the past 9 years.
