Addressing unmet social needs

Thrive Local social health network to address needs on a broad scale.

It’s hard to remain healthy when you have pressing social needs such as a lack of safe, stable housing; adequate, nutritious food; or reliable transportation. That’s why Kaiser Permanente partnered with Unite Us to create Thrive Local, the most comprehensive, far-reaching social health network of its kind.

Thrive Local enables health care providers to connect individuals to appropriate services through a robust network of nonprofit, public, and private resources. The network launched this summer in Kaiser Permanente’s Northwest Region and will be available within 3 years to all our 12.3 million members and the 68 million people who live in the communities we serve.
