Happy, Healthy New Year, Santa Clarita Valley!

The New Year will dawn a lot brighter in the Santa Clarita Valley now that eight local non-profit organizations have received a total of $62,626 in grants from Kaiser Permanente to help improve the health of its residents. These grants will provide expanded access to care, exercise and therapy for at risk youth, the uninsured homeless, single moms and children with mental health issues, low income seniors, uninsured families needing dental care and Special Olympics athletes.

Our community partners work to improve health education and the prevention and early detection and treatment of chronic diseases. They also promote healthy eating and active living to combat increased obesity rates through medical, environmental, and social changes.

“Our physicians and employees in the Santa Clarita Valley are proud to support our local non-profit organizations with these grants,” said David Wong, MD, physician in charge, Santa Clarita Medical Offices. “Through partnerships with these groups, we are working to benefit the community at large by addressing issues and concerns that affect its overall health.”

Kaiser Permanente has announced grants to these organizations:

  • Boys and Girls Club of Santa Clarita Valley received $10,000 to support “Triple-Play,” a three-pronged (mind-body-soul) comprehensive health, fitness, and wellness initiative for at-risk youth at their club locations in the Santa Clarita Valley.
  • Bridge to Home received $9,626 to support a Health Navigator to coordinate healthcare for uninsured, homeless individuals and families.
