Kaiser Permanente
2023 Community Health Snapshot


Serving communities around our Vacaville and Vallejo 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 $1.8 million to support local nonprofits and partners working to build healthier communities in our Napa-Solano 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.

Our $50,000 grant to Mentis in Napa County funded mental health treatment for 35 community members with low incomes who suffered from trauma affecting their ability to function. Mentis offers bilingual services to people of all ages regardless of their ability to pay.

The Kaiser Permanente support is an enormous benefit to the community. It helped us to do much-needed bilingual outreach, enrollment, retention and utilization to connect eligible community members to Medi-Cal, Covered California, or other affordable health care options.”
-Jesus Rosas, Program Director, Community Health Initiative

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.

Our funding of Community Health Initiative (CHI) supported its bilingual Medi-Cal outreach, enrollment, navigation, and referrals in Napa and Solano counties. CHI helped people to keep their Medi-Cal coverage or enroll in another affordable health care option. Our $95,000 grant also supported CHI as it enrolled new Medi-Cal members under California’s recent Medi-Cal expansion.

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 supported Solano Community College Educational Foundation’s SOAR program, which assists formerly incarcerated students, current and former foster youth, and students experiencing homelessness. SOAR provides wraparound support and resources to help students succeed in a technical career. Our grant helped 60 individuals prepare for employment, apply for positions, and secure quality jobs.

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 Napa-Solano communities.
