Joshua’s House, a hospice house for the terminally ill homeless, is supported in part by a planning grant from Kaiser Permanente Northern California Community Benefit Grants Program. Kaiser Permanente’s community involvement uniquely pairs grant funding with 65 yeas of clinical experience, medical research and volunteerism to support prevention-focused, evidence-based programs that are expanding access to care and creating healthy environments.
Kaiser Permanente recently awarded LifeLong Medical Care a $85,000 grant that will help more in this community get access to the resources they need to lead a healthy life.
Equally important, Joshua’s House would serve to significantly reduce healthcare costs while providing quality hospice care to those in the homeless community.
