Economic Stability

Recognizing the connection between people’s finances (income, cost of living and socioeconomic status) and their health, California’s not-for-profit hospitals have developed innovative community benefit programs and activities that address key issues such as poverty, food insecurity, housing instability and homelessness, vocational training, and employment and income.
