Kaiser Permanente

Kaiser Permanente in the Community

Kaiser Permanente is committed to helping shape the future of health care. To do that, we know we must focus on the impact we can have on our community at home and its tireless workers who care for our well-being, day in and day out. We recognize that the health of our community is so much more than physically healing a broken bone or prescribing medications. That’s why we are making financial contributions starting with housing and education.

EDUCATION IS HEALTH

Kaiser Permanente supports training and developing nurses to make a healthy difference. We understand more nurses means more trained advocates for care, resulting in better health outcomes in our communities. Providing access to education and training empowers individuals, creating real opportunities to thrive. That’s why we’re partnering with local colleges and universities and investing $100,000 in scholarships for nursing students and graduate loan repayments.

Kaiser Permanente is funding scholarships for students at these Atlanta institutions in 2022:

Georgia Gwinnett College provides financial assistance for nursing students, faculty retention through graduate loan repayments, and Student Success Coach that provides mentoring for students and faculty. Together these activities will lead to faculty retention, student success and increased health professionals in the workforce.

Grant amount: $25,000

Georgia State University Nursing Program will provide scholarship support to students across Georgia State’s nursing programs.

Grant amount: $25,000

HOUSING IS HEALTH

Kaiser Permanente is committed to helping shape the future of health care. We understand that good health begins where people live. So, we’re partnering with local organizations and investing more than $1 million in grants to serve Metro Atlanta communities.

Kaiser Permanente has an ongoing commitment to end homelessness and preserve affordable housing by making strategic grants, shaping policy, and catalyzing innovative partnerships.

The metro Atlanta organizations that Kaiser Permanente will help fund in 2022 are:

Atlanta Neighborhood Development Partnership, Inc. will support the “2022-2023 Affordable Housing Investment in South DeKalb County and Clayton County” initiative, which will provide 30 single-family for-sale homes and single-family rental properties to primarily Black low- to moderate-income families and down payment assistance (DPA) for five additional families.

Grant amount: $200,000

Westside Future Fund will support quality cradle-to-career education and affordable housing for vulnerable residents of Atlanta’s Historic Westside.

Partners for HOME will support the goal of ending homelessness for 250 veterans in the City of Atlanta.
