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
