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.


Share Your Story

Our Community. Our Stories. Share Yours.

There are moments that inspire. Moments that touch your heart, open your eyes or inspire action. Often a single moment can achieve all three.

Moments like these happen all the time throughout our programs and countless others like them. If you come across one of these moments, please share it here. It may just be the spark that inspires one more person to get involved.

Keep Your Students Fired Up this Fall

Encourage the kids in your life to develop an early love of being physically active with Fire Up Your Feet, a fun, easy, and free program that rewards schools with cash awards for keeping physically active. Any school (K – 8) can enroll in the Fire Up Your Feet Fall Activity Challenge, which runs October 1-31, 2016, and the program is available for Kaiser Permanente members and non-members alike.

Active kids learn better in school, and Fire Up Your Feet helps to promote a culture of wellness for students, staff, and teachers in our schools. Over $95,000 will be given to participating K – 8 schools this fall, which can be used by winning schools to purchase playground equipment, bike training programs and bike racks. The program also provides handy hints and incentives for walking and biking, traffic safety measures, and much more.

To learn more, including how to sign up for Fire Up Your Feet, you can visit fireupyourfeet.org. Please help us spread the word by posting this flyer (English/Spanish) in a highly visible area and encourage Kaiser Permanente physicians and employees to share the flyers and program with their local schools.

Fire Up Your Feet is a part of the Safe Routes to School National Partnership, with national partners that include Kaiser Permanente, the National PTA, and People For Bikes.
