What will it take to get to a more safe and healthy future for all Californians?

Program Overview

California is a diverse state. 40 million people live here. Over 220 languages are spoken by those who call it home. The needs of these people are just as diverse as they are and this means that a one-size fits all approach will not work. Across the state, far too many of our most vulnerable neighbors are being left behind. At Blue Shield of California Foundation, we're working with communities, from Modoc County to Fresno, on three breakthrough initiatives to support the needs of all Californians.

Our work focuses on:

Breaking the Cycle of Domestic Violence

Violence is cyclical, generational, and can be experienced and felt over a lifetime. We are working to stop domestic violence before it starts so that people experiencing or witnessing it can reach their full potential. 

Collaborating for Healthy Communities

We're working to expand breakthrough collaborative models that support community health and end domestic violence.

Designing the Future of Health

How can communities create long-term solutions for health? How do we make sure solutions are equitable and responsive? Together with our partners and communities, we are diving in to do what it takes to create a vibrant health ecosystem for all.
