Encompass Rating System by Charity Navigator


Charity Navigator’s Encompass Rating System evolves on a quarterly basis as we add new measures and indicators, which we call Beacons. Check back often to see how this organization’s score changes.

Charity Navigator provides 501(c)(3) nonprofits with an Encompass Rating when we have available data. Please see the sections below for more information on why this organization is not currently rated.

This organization cannot be evaluated by our Encompass Rating methodology because it files Form 990-N, as allowed by the IRS for charities with less than $50,000 annual revenue.

The lack of a rating for this reason simply means that the organization does not meet our rating criteria. It does not indicate a positive or negative assessment by Charity Navigator.

What is your organization aiming to accomplish?

By implementing A New Leaf, A Vision of Health aims to instruct participants on nutritional and physical activity changes that directly mitigate and prevent the onset of diabetes and hypertension.


What are your strategies for making this happen?

The PreventT2 Program consists of 16 weekly group sessions, followed by 6-8 monthly sessions. Classes are led by CDC-certified and trained lifestyle coaches who educate participants on long-term changes including healthy food and proper portion sizes, stress management, physical activity, and more. AVOH designed its program to deliver the instruction and information in native-fluent Spanish. This is a key feature, unique to A New Leaf and the focus disease preventive measures. The ability to provide coaching, lessons and ongoing consult and information in Spanish increases participant’s participation retention and program completion. The classes and physical activity sessions are scheduled and held in local community centers that typically house an indoor gym and other available meeting space. This provides a centralized, and easily accessible location for participants to reach via public transport or other means. In addition, childcare is provided for each session throughout the program, giving busy parents an opportunity to participate. Sessions are scheduled around strategic times of the day, particularly early evenings when working parents are able to participate and children have returned from school. Lastly the program addresses the barriers and social determinants that prevent program participation by offering the program at no cost to referred patients, and recruited participants. Access to healthcare is a key issue that provides for the lack of preventive care and diagnostic measures that can help the Hispanic community lower its morbidity rates and increase its overall knowledge.


What are your organization's capabilities for doing this?

A unique feature of the proposed program is that it is the first program in Los Angeles that offers diabetes, cancer, and overall disease prevention and education to low income Spanish speaking communities in native tongue/Spanish. Classes are designed for small group settings which allows for one on one interaction with each participant and the chance to develop a closer bond between peers and the Coach. They are held in a local community activity center that has an available gym and meeting room. Individual goals are set, and all participants’ weight and physical activity are closely monitored and recorded each week to compare their progress from the previous week and advised on what changes to make if necessary. The program has established a “warm line” that participants can call and text the coaches if they have any questions or concerns about their weekly food intakes. Participants are given healthy drinks and snacks at each class, as well as valuable tips and challenges to stay motivated, nutritious and culturally sensitive recipes, a chance to participate in a raffle, and a free Zumba session with a certified Zumba instructor. Participants may bring their children who are supervised by A New Leaf representative. The goal is to make the class and its activities accessible to busy mom’s and working women.


How will your organization know if you are making progress?

AVOH proposes to evaluate its programs efficiency and delivery strategy in a series of data points. Participant ongoing evaluation and tracking is a critical component of the program’s operation. Participant’s weight, BMI and initial nutritional intake is recorded and journaled. These same data points are evaluated at the 8-week midpoint, and 16-week program completion, and then again after the 12-week post-core sessions. This gives the program 9 valuable reference points. In addition, a participant’s overall program satisfaction and input will be encouraged. By gathering input and evaluation feedback the program will continuously find ways to improve its service delivery. A pre-participation survey will gauge a participant’s information knowledge and their expectations, a post-participation and completion survey will evaluate the participants satisfaction with the program content, delivery and resources.


What have and haven't you accomplished so far?

After completion of the 16-week core program, more than 50% of past participants have lowered their BMI.
