The Pediatric and Family Medical Center launched the “Eisner/Los Angeles Public Library” dental program in 2019, providing free dental screenings one Saturday per month to traditionally underserved communities. The NORCAL Group Foundation’s funds will support the extension of that program’s goal to increase awareness of the importance of oral health care and to provide care to at least 150 individuals over the course of 12 months.
The Pediatric Family Medical Center, part of Eisner Health, is a quality-focused federally qualified health center dedicated to improving the physical, social and emotional well-being of people in the communities they serve, regardless of income.
The Arc Minnesota’s assistance programs for people with disabilities target improvements to the social determinants of health. These include access to transportation, healthcare, stable housing and more – all critical factors in achieving positive health outcomes for that at-risk community. Funding from the NORCAL Group Foundation will support The Arc's ongoing efforts to connect people with disabilities to critical healthcare services by helping them to overcome barriers to access and to navigate complex systems.
The Arc Minnesota promotes and protects the human rights of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, actively supporting them and their families in a lifetime of full inclusion and participation in their communities.
The programs of The Caregiver’s Journal focus on more thoughtful incorporation of family caregivers into the provider-patient discourse and treatment, improved hospital discharge information for caregivers, and creation of additional in-person and virtual support groups near hospitals and population centers. NORCAL Group Foundation funds will support The Caregiver’s Journal and their important efforts to provide family caregivers a central source for meaningful and relevant education and training.
The Caregiver’s Journal seeks to change the overall culture of caregiving in the home by helping the hundreds of thousands of family caregivers manage their stressful emotional issues and the care needs of their patients through education, training, and solutions for well-being and improved communications.
