Serving the terminally ill homeless
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.
At Sutter Health, a commitment to the community is at the core of our mission. We seek to extend our reach far beyond the walls of our hospitals and into the greater community, by making strategic and innovative investments in community partners and programs. We offer myriad programs, from the Interim Care Program, which provides respite care for homeless individuals and wraps them with services to the Street Nurse and Community Navigator programs, which help connect the underserved with medical and social resources, just to name a few.
