Kaiser awards grants to Yolo nonprofits

Kaiser Permanente has awarded eight community benefit grants totaling $227,950 to nonprofit organizations dedicated to helping individuals and families live healthier lives in Yolo County.

CommuniCare Health Centers, the main safety net provider in Yolo County, which has primary care clinics in Davis, Woodland and West Sacramento, is receiving $40,000 to expand a program that will connect homeless people with federal and state aid.

* The Davis-based Yolo County Children’s Alliance is receiving $25,000 to support the West Sacramento Family Resource Center, which helps eligible families obtain health insurance, fresh food and other resources.

Yolo Family Service Agency, which aims to strengthen communities in Woodland, Davis, West Sacramento and rural areas of the county, is receiving $15,000 to fund counseling sessions for 25 students and their families through a partnership with the Washington Unified School District.

By providing therapeutic services, clinicians will help students deal with issues such as anger management, inattentiveness in the classroom and at home, social skills, separation issues, mood disorders and anxiety.

Yolo Family Resource Center is receiving $15,000 to help expand Promotoras for Active Living, a program that trains bilingual laypersons to deliver health education and help primarily Latino families access benefits and other services in communities such as Woodland, Knights Landing and Davis.

Women’s Empowerment, an organization that teaches life skills to homeless women, is receiving $15,000 to fund substance abuse support groups and a domestic violence support group, for individuals from Yolo, Sacramento and Placer counties.

* The Health Education Council of West Sacramento is receiving $51,450 to fund the highly successful and popular Don’t Buy The Lie anti-smoking campaign for students across greater Sacramento, which includes a poster contest, curriculum and school assemblies led by Dr. Victor DeNoble, an anti-tobacco crusader.

* Elica Health Centers, which operates clinics in West Sacramento and Sacramento, is using its $41,500 grant to develop a comprehensive behavioral health program for at least 633 clients.

* Harm Reduction Services, which is committed to reducing drug-related harm in West Sacramento and Sacramento County, is receiving $25,000 to strengthen its young substance user program.

The grants are among dozens that Kaiser Permanente awards to not-for-profit organizations, schools and government entities in greater Sacramento that seek to improve access to medical care, support mental health services, reduce violence, and promote healthy eating and active living.

In all, Kaiser Permanente has awarded 55 community benefit grants totaling $1.4 million to local communities so far this year.
