2023 Community Health Snapshot

Greater Sacramento

Serving communities around our Roseville, Sacramento, and South Sacramento 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 $4.3 million to support local nonprofits and partners working to build healthier communities in our Roseville, Sacramento, and South Sacramento service areas.

Our partnership with Kaiser Permanente has allowed us to strengthen and grow our work. We’ve built new partnerships, invested in the well-being of front-line staff, and enhanced supports for some of our most vulnerable students and their families.”

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.

To improve the mental well-being of students and teachers, Kaiser Permanente provided more than $250,000 in grant funding and clinical mental health resources to 5 school districts serving more than 180,000 students across Greater Sacramento. This support helped create safe and welcoming school environments for vulnerable students who are recent refugees, unstably housed, who identify as LGBTQ+, and for students needing additional on-site mental health supports.

Improving access
to care

Millions of Californians with low incomes rely on Medi-Cal for critical medical, dental, and mental health services. We supported community partners in keeping eligible residents enrolled. Through grants, training, and technical assistance we also helped safety-net hospitals and health centers to improve quality and expand access to care for people who need it most.

We invested $200,000 to expand outreach, navigation, and enrollment support for Medi-Cal members to help maintain their health care benefits amid changing federal guidelines. Our funding for Community HealthWorks, La Familia Counseling Center, and Asian Resources Inc., supported education and enrollment for more than 3,000 eligible individuals from underserved communities across Greater Sacramento.

This ongoing support allows our staff to empower survivors of human trafficking and other at-risk youth with reliable jobs and the life essentials that are crucial for good health.”

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 provided $250,000 in grant funding to 10 agencies across Greater Sacramento that are increasing employment training and job opportunities for youth and adults who face barriers to employment. Kaiser Permanente’s investments led to greater financial stability and resiliency for women coming out of homelessness, survivors of human trafficking, and disconnected youth and young adults.

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 Greater Sacramento communities.
