Biannual Report 2019-2020

Letter to the Community The Jenkins Foundation is committed to improving the health of Greater Richmond and equity is a key driver for our investments. We seek to reduce health disparities and increase access to health services for individuals who are underserved or stigmatized. With the convergence of the COVID-19 pandemic and the national movement towards racial justice, our work to support local frontline organizations has never been more important. As we continue to realize the physical and mental health impacts of these crises, particularly for disproportionately affected Black and Latinx communities, the Jenkins Foundation is working closely with nonprofit partners to understand how to best support them in this critical time. This year, we awarded operating funds for greater flexibility as nonprofits maintain current services and adapt to emergent needs, such as implementing telehealth platforms or increasing staffing for resource lines. We also committed additional resources to two immediate and collaborative response efforts: • $100,000 to the Central Virginia COVID-19 Response Fund, which is providing rapid relief to organizations addressing the region’s urgent needs, including health care. • $500,000 deposit account with Virginia Community Capital Bank for the Paycheck Protection Program, providing resources to help small businesses and nonprofits bridge revenue shortfalls due to the pandemic. We believe our community is best served when we all work together, and we are grateful for the nonprofit partners, peer funders and community stakeholders that make our work possible. Thank you for your continued partnership. Jane Peters

Access to Primary Care Adapting health services for unprecedented times Health Brigade, Virginia’s oldest free and charitable clinic, provides integrated health services to the most marginalized and stigmatized populations in our community. In March 2020, the organization quickly pivoted its service delivery methods with the global pandemic onset. Some staff remained on-site to maintain the most critical services while other medical staff and mental health providers transitioned patients to telehealth visits. The outreach team connected with patients virtually or in outdoor spaces using social distancing, and they began offering community COVID-19 testing, with special focus on Latinx patients and individuals without free access. Given the enormous human needs emerging from the convergence of a global pandemic, a depressed economy, and the historical racial disparities in health care, safety net organizations committed to diversity and social justice like Health Brigade are critical for restoring hope and improving the health and well-being of our communities.” - Karen Legato, Executive Director of Health Brigade

6,862 medical visits at the clinic last year.

427 COVID-19 tests to Latinx patients and those without access.

1,455 people served through the Health Outreach Department, including HIV testing. FY 2019

New delivery service ensures prescription access Rx Partnership works with charitable clinics in the Richmond region and across the state to serve uninsured individuals with affordable prescription medications that help treat chronic conditions. Since many of the people served by Rx Partnership are at high-risk of getting COVID-19 – either as frontline workers or those with underlying medical conditions – the organization began providing prescription delivery services at no cost to patients or the clinics.

$2.5 million value in medications provided to patients at CrossOver Ministry in 2019.

36% increase in prescriptions for CrossOver patients since the start of COVID-19.

Shifting to this model has helped keep high-risk patients and clinic staff safe by minimizing foot-traffic in the clinics. The Rx team has been able to manage medication purchasing, prescription delivery, and staff training. Because of its success, we will likely continue to offer prescription delivery services after the COVID-19 crisis subsides.” - Amy Yarcich, Executive Director of Rx Partnership

Access to Mental Health Care Building a trauma-informed community

Hotline connects survivors with support and resources

Greater Richmond SCAN convenes the Greater Richmond Trauma-Informed Community Network (GRTICN), a regional coalition of public, private and government organizations who work together to create a trauma-informed and resilient community. One of the ways the network has responded to the pandemic is by offering free virtual workshops on self-care and stress management for families and community professionals.

YWCA Richmond partners with 5 local agencies to run the 24/7 Greater Richmond Regional Hotline, which directs survivors of intimate partner violence to trauma specialists who can connect them with crisis intervention services.

The significant participation and positive response we’ve seen for the virtual self-care workshops really speaks to the current need for people to talk about the stress they’re feeling, and to get strategies on how to take care of themselves and manage uncertainty. — Melissa McGinn, GRTICN Co-Coordinator

1,590 people attended screenings of Resilience, a documentary about the impact of adverse childhood experiences. FY 2019

When residents began sheltering in place due to the pandemic, the YWCA saw a reduction in calls because survivors of intimate partner violence could not place calls discreetly while at home with partners, children or roommates. In response, the organization successfully launched texting capabilities for the hotline in May.

4,200 survivors of intimate partner violence connected to resources. FY 2020

Prevention & Treatment of Substance Use Disorders Expanding access to residential recovery programs CARITAS understands that the moment a person decides to seek help is a crucial juncture that could save his or her life. That is why its long-term, residential recovery program – The Healing Place for Men – fills such a critical need by helping those suffering from addiction to carve pathways to sobriety, employment and spiritual wellness. While the pandemic has required adjustments in program delivery to ensure the health and safety of staff and participants, it also has underscored how vital a safe, supportive environment is to this health vulnerable population. One thing the pandemic has not hindered is the continued construction of the CARITAS Center, which will house the long-awaited Healing Place for Women. Scheduled to open in Fall 2020, this new option will help combat the rising rate of overdoses among women in our region.

160 beds available at the new Healing Place for Women.

9,500 men have been served by the Healing Place since 2005.

I thought if I could just stop doing drugs and alcohol I would be okay. I didn’t realize there was a deeper underlying issue. Through the program, I was able to see myself. “[The CARITAS Center] is truly a building where miracles happen. Soon, it will be here. Right here.” - Holly, a Richmond native who sought treatment at the Healing Place in Raleigh
