Mission

The 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 Do

We 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.
