Programs

When the pandemic hit, AltaMed’s scale, stability and expertise in serving vulnerable communities helped us play a key role in softening the impact in our community. However, many of our patients are still struggling with the pandemic’s devastating effects on their health, livelihoods, economic status, families, cultural traditions and more.

THE CURRENT CRISIS

Today, many of our patients ignore the importance of regular physician check-ups to detect diabetes and heart disease or complications, and even monitor dental wellness.

The overall prosperity of our community has fallen on the shoulders of mothers, too. This is largely because:

Statistically, mothers are three times more likely than fathers to be responsible for caregiving

of women schedule doctors appointments for their families

of women do most of the health-related research for their kids

It's time that we give back to mothers

In order to create real changes in the health and well-being of our communities, there must be strategic investments made in those who make decisions regarding the health care of the family. It’s time that we give back to mothers, to ensure they have the proper support and resources to keep themselves and their families healthy with a network of innovative, accessible community programs.

At AltaMed, we are deeply engaged in community-focused outreach, education, and resource development. When existing social support programs aren’t available, sufficient, or effective, we do everything we can to create our own.

However, one organization can’t do this alone. Our communities need a collection of highly committed people all working together for the same cause.

WHAT WE'RE DOING

We’re supporting underserved families with strategic, targeted investments in their well-being

In recent years, we’ve made strategic investments to strengthen infrastructure, develop an in-home care and outreach program, implement an electronic health records system, and create a family medicine residency program. All were invaluable in our swift and precise response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Altamed offers a wide range of programs that can make it easier to live healthy, manage chronic conditions, lose weight, and achieve other important health milestones.

WITH YOUR SUPPORT, ALTAMED CAN EXPAND THESE PROGRAMS DEVELOPED TO SUPPORT MOTHERS AND THEIR FAMILIES INCLUDING:

Healthy mothers equal healthy communities, but we need your help to ensure they have the support they need.

AltaMed relies on the support of generous donors to develop and expand our community programs. Without continued support, the reach of our programs will be limited and many families will not get the vital help they need to prosper and grow healthy. Through your donation, you can directly help us ensure that the mothers in our community have the support and resources they need to maintain their health and that of their families.

One-time gifts are welcome, but ongoing gifts will help even more. Donating once will positively impact one family, but your ongoing support will change the lives of thousands.
