Promoting health, racial equity and racial justice throughout California
The Center at Sierra Health Foundation brings people, ideas and infrastructure together to create a collective impact.
Every person in California should be able to live a healthy life. That is the vision we stand by and the journey we are committed to.
Sierra Health Foundation created The Center at a time when nonprofits and public agencies throughout California faced diminishing resources and rapidly increasing needs. As the gap between funding and solutions continued to increase, we realized that a new and innovative approach was required to address the need.
Every person in California should be able to live a healthy life. That’s the vision we stand by and the journey we are committed to.
Our Programs and Initiatives
The Center at Sierra Health Foundation promotes health, racial equity and racial justice with local, state and national partners throughout the state.
