Kaiser Permanente Diablo
2022 Community Health Snapshot


Serving communities around our Antioch and Walnut Creek medical facilities.

the health of our communities

Our work is informed continually by a comprehensive assessment of community health needs, and our grantmaking focuses on making the greatest impact. We’re proud to support local nonprofits and community partners meeting the critical health needs of underserved populations. Together, we’re creating healthier and more equitable communities.

In 2022, Kaiser Permanente provided $1.6 million in charitable contributions to address community health priorities in our Diablo service area. Read on for examples of our work.

Supporting community mental health

Amid a national mental health professional shortage, we invested in expanding a diverse, well-trained, culturally responsive mental health workforce. We also focused on increasing access to mental health services for low-income and vulnerable populations.

One example is our 2-year, $95,000 grant to Monument Impact that provides the 8-week Mentes Positivas en Acción (Positive Minds in Action) program to Latinx community members in Central and East Contra Costa County. Trained community health promoters teach participants skills to reduce and manage stress and anxiety in their lives.

Improving conditions for health and equity

Because good health begins where people live, we worked to improve factors affecting health in our communities, such as access to safe, stable housing, and affordable nutritious food.

Our 2-year, $75,000 grant to Fresh Approach supports easy access to affordable, healthy produce for low-income residents in Antioch via a Mobile Farmers’ Market truck. Our funding also supports Fresh Approach’s efforts to enroll eligible households in CalFresh (food stamps).

Strengthening the health care safety net

We partnered with safety-net hospitals and community health centers to improve care quality for low-income, Medi-Cal, and uninsured patients. Kaiser Permanente clinicians also donated their time and expertise to support these patients.

An example of our safety-net support is our 2-year, $95,000 grant to La Clínica de la Raza that funds outreach to low-income communities in Central and East Contra Costa County for Medi-Cal enrollment and retention. Bilingual/bicultural community health promoters provide information about coverage options and assist with eligibility screening, applications, and enrollment.
