To be our healthiest, we need more than high-quality medical care — good health begins where people live. Everyone should have successful schools, clean air, accessible parks, safe playgrounds, and fresh fruits and vegetables in neighborhood stores.
At Kaiser Permanente, we’re working to improve the conditions for health and equity in the communities we serve.
That means addressing all the factors that affect health, such as having a safe place to live, enough money to pay the bills, access to healthy meals, and meaningful social connections.
As one of the nation’s largest nonprofit, integrated health care organizations, we are uniquely positioned to improve the conditions for health and equity in the communities we serve.
Since 1945, Kaiser Permanente has invested in community health, making charitable contributions to nonprofit, community-based organizations that share our vision for community health access and equity.

When it comes to improving health, we know a one-size-fits-all approach won’t work. Every community in which we provide care is unique.
