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.
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 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.
