Nursing Program

ANA provides scholarships and NCLEX testing fees for nurses studying at University of New Mexico - Gallup. In 2014 ANA began a partnership with UNM-G and Doylestown Hospital. In May, UNM-G nursing students come to Doylestown and Einstein Hospitals to work in departments not available at hospitals at home and spend a day in the nursing suites at various schools in the Central Bucks School District. In the fall, volunteer nurses travel to the Gallup, NM area to perform health screenings for elementary school children where there are no school nurses. ANA partners with the Lions Club of Gallup to perform vision screenings.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Children who will have little to nothing to eat at home over the weekend are sent home on Friday afternoon with a back pack full of nutritious food to eat over the weekend. This allows them to come back to school on Monday nourished and ready to learn. We are the major supported for the Food for Kids program administered at the Community Pantry in Gallup, NM. There are currently 960 children in the program. In addition we fund the Kids Cafe and since the pandemic we also send additional food to schools so they can supplement the breakfasts and lunches with snacks.

Population(s) Served
Children and youth

Veterinarian Clinics are held twice each year on the Hopi and Navajo reservations. Veterinarians, veterinary technicians, and students from the University of Pennsylvania Veterinary School work under the direction of Dr. Robinson, Dr. Barnet, and Dr. Smith. They inoculate and worm hundreds of cattle, horses, and sheep and neuter and/or inoculate hundreds of dogs and cats. In partnership with Zuni and Biotecture Planet Earth, ANA built a self-sustaining Veterinarian Clinic.

Population(s) Served

ANA provides NEW clothing for students identified by school personnel ... coats, pants, shirts, underwear, and new shoes, as well as glasses and blankets when needed.

ANA provides books and school supplies requested by teachers and administrators. We also fund the cost of GED testing for parents who have studied to take the exam.

Charting impact

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

To improve the quality of life for Native Americans on the Hopi, Navajo, and Zuni Nations by providing essential goods an programs which foster self-reliance and mutual understanding.

Our strategy has always been to ask for the current needs from those we partner with and then act on those requests, rather than just assume we know what is needed.

ANA works closely with the communities it serves and finds partners who can help us achieve those goals. As an all volunteer organization, with no paid staff or office to support, ANA can use 97% of its resources for the programs it supports.

Since 2014 when the program began, 2,886 children have received health screenings- more will be screened each year. In 2019 we partnered with the Lions Club of Gallup to join our screenings to perform the vision screenings and provide glasses for the students who need them.

870 children are now in the Food for Kids program through the distribution program at the Community Pantry in Gallup, NM. In 2022 we funded the Food for Kids Program with $92,000. In 2017 we added the Kids Café to help feed children at middle and high schools who need to stay after school. In 2018 we began providing "food for kids" at schools which are too remote on the reservation to receive the regular program from the Community Pantry.

We continue to provide eyeglasses for students and adults in the Zuni community through their Zuni Optical program.

Each year we work with school teachers and administrators to provide requested clothing, shoes, and coats for specific students, as well as classroom supplies and books that they request.

In partnership with the University of New Mexico - Gallup, we provide scholarships for Native American nursing students. Since the program began in 2006, we have provided 277 undergraduate scholarships totaling $174,000, and paid for NCLEX testing fees for 147 students after they graduated, totaling $58,921. In 2020, we began scholarships for advanced degrees. To date we have awarded 25 scholarships for $49,303. In addition, nursing students join us for the health screenings in Navajo schools, gaining valuable clinical hours.

Tens of thousands of animals have been spayed, neutered, inoculated, and had surgery - more will be treated each year. In 2018 we began partnering with Zuni and Biotecture Planet Earth to build a self-sustaining veterinarian clinic for their community. That facility was completed in 2022.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
