Woodland Healthcare, an affiliate hospital of Dignity Health, has awarded $70,000 in grant funding to four nonprofit organizations in Yolo County.

The Dignity Health Community Grants Program is open to all nonprofit community service organizations that share Dignity’s mission and values and are dedicated to building healthier communities.

Dignity Health grant funds are to be used to provide services to underserved populations (economically poor; women and children; mentally or physically disabled; or other disenfranchised populations) with special focus on communities of concern identified in the hospital’s Community Health Needs Assessment.

Since the program’s inception in 1990, Dignity Health hospitals have made grant awards for nearly 3,000 projects, totaling almost $47 million.

Grants in Yolo County were awarded to Suicide Prevention and Crisis Services of Yolo County and Yolo Community Care Continuum, a partnership that will respond to the lack of available mental health care services during non-business hours. The objective of this collaborative is to improve the safety and mental well-being for individuals and to decrease avoidable emergency room admissions.

Grants also were awarded to Citizens Who Care for the Elderly and Rural Innovations in Social Economics (RISE), a collaboration that will provide no-cost support services to older adults and families coping with the challenges of various stages of dementia, ranging from early memory loss to advanced dementia.

“At Woodland Healthcare, we are proud to collaborate with local nonprofit organizations through our community grants program to help improve the health of people in our community,” said Kevin Vaziri, president of Woodland Healthcare. “These nonprofit partnerships in Yolo County will provide much-needed services in mental health and early to late stages of dementia in the elderly.”

Grants were awarded to the Yolo County nonprofits at a luncheon Jan. 6 at Woodland Memorial Hospital.
