Organization: Community Health Centers of the Central Coast – Santa Maria, California.
Project: Creating Access: Healthy Mind & Body.
Problem: Families in the local community of Santa Maria are experiencing stress and depression due to food insecurities. This has impacted the entity’s patients, specifically the agricultural workers and homeless families of the area. The rise in depression has also resulted in affected individuals not seeking assistance – due to the perceived stigma surrounding mental health.
Solution: The allocated grant funds will be used to obtain a vehicle to deliver food and other basic needs to special populations (homeless, low-income, public housing, farm laborers). This is particularly important, as the affected populations are unlikely to seek assistance in public, due to mental health conditions or lack of transportation. The entity will also provide mental health assistance for those affected.
Here at CaptureRx, we are honored to support Capture Cares and its continued effort to enable the missions of covered entities. This is just one example of how grants can be used to impact communities and their patients.
