The Health Trust
San Jose, California, USA
MissionThe Health Trust's mission is to build health equity in Silicon Valley.
We believe that everyone in our community should have the opportunity to be healthy. A person's income, race, immigration status, language, age, or zip code should never act as a barrier to health.
What We DoWe use a multifaceted approach when tackling health disparities plaguing the most vulnerable populations in our community: older adults, recently housed individuals, and people at risk of, or living with, a chronic condition.
We align our roles as a funder, a provider, and an advocate to create lasting change for the people we serve and to the systems and policies affecting their health.
As a funder, we award grants to community-based organizations and community initiatives that are building health equity. We seek to amplify our role as a grantmaker by partnering with other like-minded funders.
As a provider, we provide direct services to vulnerable community members. Our services are tried-and-true, evidence based, and often not provided by other local community-based organizations.
As an advocate, we champion systems and policy changes that align with our focus areas. We seek to amplify our role as a bold policy advocate by partnering with government officials, local leaders, and community-based organizations to catalyze change on a broader, county-wide level.
