Working together to build a healthier community for all of us.

Kaiser Permanente believes when we collaborate and support each other, our work improves the quality of health and life in our communities.

We are dedicated to total health of body, mind, and spirit, and we pursue efforts that broaden access to the highest quality care for people when they need it. We believe all of us deserve to live healthy lives in our homes, our workplaces, and our neighborhoods. That’s why, for more than 65 years, we have worked to improve the health of our members and the communities we serve.

We accomplish this work in countless ways, from funding knowledge and resource sharing programs that address health disparities to providing assistance with health care costs to people in need. Our commitment is exhibited in the many ways we reach out and work with others to build a healthy future for all.

Blog Post: The Nature of Cities

In a recent blog post, The Nature of Cities, the Trust for Public Land’s Tori Kjer raises an important issue: nationally, there is a serious lack of safe places for people to exercise and play.

In her blog, Kjer discusses the important work The Trust is doing, in partnership with communities and corporate sponsors like Kaiser Permanente, to develop more sustainable neighborhoods, particularly in underserved communities.

“How can we make sure that our least-served communities have access to nature and a quality of life that includes simple improvements like shade trees, benches at bus stops, and a park at the end of the block?” asks Kjer.

One important way to do this is to work directly with these neighborhoods to design and build community-based park projects. With the Avalon Green Alley Demonstration Project, The Trust for Public Land and the City of Los Angeles Bureau of Sanitation are testing out the idea of converting alleys into usable open spaces that also capture rain water.

“The Trust for Public Land is working directly with underserved communities across L.A. and beyond to design and build community-based green infrastructure [parks, playground, and physical fitness spaces] and park projects.”

Such projects not only cool the city, connect communities, protect shorelines, and absorb and keep our water local. They also green, clean, and bring resources to our disadvantaged communities.
