Investing in Washington Communities
We have three areas of focus for our community giving:
- Social determinants of health: food insecurity, education, transportation, and housing needs
- Equity: healthcare disparities/inequities among BIPOC, LGBTQ+, incarcerated, foster care and other underrepresented populations.
- Capacity building: workforce shortages and barriers to care
Coordinated Care endeavors to go beyond traditional sponsorship with our community giving, viewing partner projects and efforts as opportunities to invest in our communities and ignite systemic change. We connect with innovative partners doing amazing work throughout Washington, supporting their work and collaborating to maximize our combined expertise to truly impact the health of our communities.
In 2022, Coordinated Care partnered with more than 150 organizations and contributed 613 employee volunteer hours, a total impact of more than $3.6 million, to help transform the health of local communities, one person at a time.
We also know access to nutritious and healthy food is essential for health and wellness. We’ve focused on addressing hunger and food security for years but amplified our efforts in 2020 by launching our One Million Meals campaign. With generous employee and community donations and local partnerships, we exceeded our goal by providing 1.6 million meals in 2020 and an additional 3 million meals in 2021! That success has inspired us to continue this annual campaign.
