Integrated managed care organization Kaiser Permanente recently awarded more than $62,000 in community benefit grants to eight non-profit organizations in the Santa Clarita Valley region. Each of the awarded health and human services organizations focus on on improving health and wellness locally, with a particular emphasis on under-served populations.
Specifically, the funds come through Kaiser’s Permanente’s Community Benefit Grants Program, which is dedicated to supporting direct services that improve the health and well-being of the communities within its geographic service areas. The program particularly emphasizes funding provider organizations that focus on early detection and treatment of chronic diseases, improving consumers’ physical and nutritional health, and expanding access to care for lower-income and uninsured consumers. The eight organizations who will be receiving funding from the program include:
- Boys & Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley
- Bridge to Home
- Carousel Ranch
- Child & Family Center
- Samuel Dixon Family Health Center
- Santa Clarita Valley Senior Center
- Santa Clarita Valley Youth Project
- Single Mothers Outreach
