Kaiser Permanente Approves $12 Million in Community Benefit Grants in Third Quarter of 2008
Date:10/28/2008

The 34,660-square-foot medical facility will be constructed with state-of-the-art energy-efficient and environmentally responsible materials, fixtures and operations. The new facility will enable La Maestra to accommodate 60,000 patient visits per year.

Kaiser Permanente's funding over the next three years will be allocated toward medical, mental health and substance abuse services for almost 4,000 homeless in the City and County of Denver.

A $335.000 grant also was awarded to a unique collaboration for a pilot program in Los Angeles County that will place homeless individuals in an intensive mental illness/addiction treatment program that includes permanent housing and stabilization instead of serving a jail term. The pilot program is a collaboration with the Los Angeles Public Defender's Office, the Los Angeles City Attorney, Integrated Recovery Network and Gateways Hospital and Mental Health Center, and is designed to support people who struggle to address the multiple challenges of homelessness, mental illness and addiction to achieve their goals of stability and independence.
