Nonprofiteer of the Year Award

AMPHS Honored as a GreatNonprofits Top-Rated Charity

new badgeWe are extremely excited to announce today that AMPHS has been honored with a prestigious 2013 Top-Rated  Award by GreatNonprofits, the leading provider of reviews on not-for-profit organizations across the United States. AMPHS was part of the inaugural group to qualify for this year. As a Top-Rated Nonprofit, AMPHS has not only demonstrated excellence and commitment to public service, transparency and accountability to our communities, but is also a disruptive innovator breaking down traditional beliefs of not-for-profit and healthcare organizations alike, making healthcare service more accessible, personable, and a true humanitarian effort. This honor follows AMPHS being named as one of the top 5 NYC charities with Nonprofiteer of the Year Finalists by the Young Non-Profit Professionals Network in both 2012 and 2013.

Before a qualified not-for-profit organization is eligible to be considered for the Top-Rated Award, the organization must commit to a long-term review process in which clients, volunteers, board members, community members, and industry experts openly rate and review the organization and its on-the-ground results. GreatNonprofit collects and audits reviews and ratings, and AMPHS has been found to be one of the “most impactful” and “life-changing” organizations, where “everyone rolled up their sleeves” to “redefine the healthcare landscape of the underserved communities.”  

We encourage everyone who hasn’t yet had the chance to review AMPHS to do so here:

AMPHS thanks all its supporters for their commitment and dedication to the AMPHS mission of bringing healthcare access and coordination to immigrant underserved communities. Without each of your support, we really could not have received this prestigious award. This award truly is a form of recognition by the community. We thank everyone for being such an integral part of one of the most effective and impactful charities in this country.

AMPHS Chief of Staff Nominated as 2013 Nonprofiteer of the Year

1012369_10151714323799609_2090810445_nAcademy of Medical and Public Health Services (AMPHS) is proud to announce that their Chief of Staff, Mon Yuck Yu, was nominated for recognition as one of five finalists for the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of New York City’s 2013 Nonprofiteer of the Year Award. This is the second year in a row that an AMPHS volunteer has received this honorary recognition.

The Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of New York City (YNPN-NYC) supports the professional development of the next generation of nonprofit leaders by providing opportunities for skill-building, information sharing, and networking. Each year, the Nonprofiteer of the Year Award is presented to a young nonprofit professional who has exemplified the values of the social sector and have made significant efforts in making their organization, and the sector as a whole, a better place.

Mon Yuck joined AMPHS in 2010, shortly after the organization was founded. In her time at AMPHS, she has been responsible for ensuring the stability of the nascent community organization by means of resource development, programming, and coordination of complex inter-departmental projects. As such, she has overseen the grants acquisitions, community engagement and public affairs, talent acquisition, staff engagement and satisfaction, and staff retention functions at AMPHS. Over the past three years, Mon Yuck has organized a number of successful staff engagement processes, such as the initial orientation session, volunteer outings, volunteer awards, the AMPHS “miniversity” workshop series  and the annual summer internship program. During this time, she has also single-handedly spearheaded a number of new clinical programs, including the highly successful vision assistance program, where AMPHS is now able to provide underserved community members with free and/or low-cost ophthalmological examinations and corrective lenses. In addition, she has worked to conduct community health research and needs assessments with her anthropological background and established a number of community partnerships. In the words of her nominee, “She takes on the challenges of the organizations as those of her own; and continually strives to deliver results at a higher standard each time through challenging herself.”

All five finalists were honored at YNPN-NYC’s anniversary event on June 27th during the YNPN-NY Annual Gala at the Center for Social Innovation and were asked to give inspirational speeches to attendees with career advice.

AMPHS congratulates Mon Yuck for receiving this prestigious nomination.
