For over two decades, we’ve worked closely with hospitals and clinics to connect people to essential resources like food, housing and transportation alongside medical care. Today, we’re working both locally and nationally to break down systemic barriers to health.
We’ve been honored to work with and support many innovative and passionate organizations and individuals who work tirelessly for health equity in their communities — and we know there are many more. Learn more and join our Network of changemakers.
Join leaders from a range of health equity-focused organizations who will present case examples and share recommendations for COVID-19 vaccination plans, partnerships and processes to improve access, build trust, and invest resources for underserved communities.
As we work to to flatten the next COVID-19 curve – the increased demand for essential resources like food, housing and income supports – it is critical that we lean on data to inform the path forward. In this post written with several of our Bay Area partners, we review various data sources to show how social services systems have been impacted by the pandemic and discuss the power of harnessing data in partnership with community input to shape interventions.
The outcome of this election may open doors and opportunities for much-needed progress toward racial equity, and we have put important, productive miles behind us over the past four years. But undoing years of systemic racism that impacts everyone’s health is multi-generational work. We hope you can take the time you need to recover and recommit ourselves to the fight for health, dignity and well-being.
