In the Community

Caring for our Community

For 75 years, Kaiser Permanente has had the same mission: to provide high-quality, affordable health care services and to improve the health of our members and our communities. We’ve always known that good health goes beyond health care.
We believe healthy individuals need healthy communities to thrive, and healthy communities need healthy people.

Kaiser Permanente supports a range of activities to enrich the health of our communities. Through our local grants program, we support, strengthen, and enhance programs and organizations that address the health needs of our most vulnerable residents.
