2023 Community Health Snapshot

Central Valley

Serving communities around our Manteca, Modesto, Stockton, and Tracy medical facilities.

Building healthier communities

Improving health and equity in the communities we serve is foundational to Kaiser Permanente’s mission. Our charitable contributions are guided by a comprehensive assessment that helps us to identify and address community health needs.

In 2023, Kaiser Permanente provided $16 million to support local nonprofits and partners working to build healthier communities in our Central Valley service area.

community mental health

With a rise in demand for mental health services and an ongoing shortage of mental health professionals, we supported programs to expand the pool of qualified, diverse mental health professionals and increase access to community services for young people and vulnerable individuals.

With Kaiser Permanente funding, Center for Human Services (CHS) in Stanislaus County supported a critical part of the mental health workforce pipeline by doubling the number of training slots in its behavioral health practicum program. CHS focuses on building a diverse, bilingual workforce that will transition to providing mental health services in our community.

Helping people
meet basic needs

Nutritious food and stable housing are essential to health, but they’re out of reach for many people in our community. We supported organizations that help those with low incomes access healthy food, enroll in benefit programs such as CalFresh, and find safe, affordable housing.

We supported Second Harvest of the Greater Valley and its Senior Brown Bag program, which served 2,500 food insecure older adults with nutritious, healthy groceries via home delivery and community distribution sites. Twice a month, groceries are supplemented with 7 to 9 pounds of additional fresh produce.

economic opportunities

Reliable jobs and stable incomes are foundational to good health, helping people afford essentials such as nutritious food and safe housing. That’s why we supported organizations that work with underserved populations and communities of color to promote college and career readiness, quality jobs, and diverse small business growth.

We funded the Tracy Chamber of Commerce through the Small Diverse Business & Entrepreneurship program, which supports 100 women in business, entrepreneurs of color and Latino-owned businesses, supporting their business growth. The program included monthly business development opportunities, training and technical assistance, and other educational resources focused on starting and growing a business.

Community health priorities

As part of our commitment to improve health and health equity in our community, every 3 years we conduct a rigorous and collaborative community health needs assessment. For 2023, Kaiser Permanente identified the following significant health priorities in our Central Valley communities.
