East Salinas Outcomes


In 2010, The Endowment launched Building Healthy Communities, a 10-year strategic plan designed to improve health systems and the physical, social, economic and service structures that support healthy living and healthy behaviors in California.

Four goals will guide our work:
  • Health systems are family centered and prioritize prevention.
  • Schools anchor communities, promote healthy behaviors and are a gateway for  resources and services.
  • Human services systems are family centered, prioritize prevention and promote  opportunities for children, young adults and their families.
  • Physical, social and economic environments in local communities support health.
These goals are informed by the fact that health problems are intrinsically linked to poverty, employment, education,child development, housing, the environment and other issues.



Outcomes for BHC East Salinas


1. CHILDREN & FAMILIES ARE SAFE FROM VIOLENCE IN HOMES & NEIGHBORHOODS (TCE #5). 

Violence prevention is not just the business of the police department. It's a public health issue, and it's preventable. Youth, parents, faith leaders, law enforcement, and local business are joining forces to create alternatives to violence along with new opportunities for kids.

2. ALL CHILDREN HAVE HEALTH COVERAGE (TCE #1).

1.5 million in California are uninsured. Working toward coverage for kids wil improve health care and lower costs in the future as healthy children become healthy adults.

3. HEALTH& FAMILYFOCUSED HUMAN SERVICES SHIFT RESOURCES TOWARDS PREVENTION (TCE #3).

We're working toward a health care system that places greater emphasis on preventing illness instead of only rseponding in times of medical crisis.

4. COMMUNITIES SUPPORT HEALTHY YOUTH DEVELOPMENT (TCE #6).

Mobilizing youth as leaders and change agents, and supporting kids to stay in school, find meaningful work, and connect with caring adults helps the next generation to thrive.

5. IMPROVED ACCESS TO HEALTH HOMES THAT SUPPORT HEALTHY BEHAVIORS (TCE #2).

A "health home" offers a home base for health care where a primary doctor provides culturally appropriate, consistent care and coordinates with other professionals to meet all of a family's health needs.
