Kaiser Permanente announced their annual Community Benefit Grant recipients Monday, which included several Peninsula organizations.

Burlingame-based Community Overcoming Relationship Abuse (CORA), PARCA, the American Heart Association and Shelter Network (now InnVision Shelter Network) all received grants.

“This funding will help provide a positive impact on our communities’ health,” said Kaiser Senior Vice President and Area Manager Frank Beirne. “Partnering with community based organizations is one way we help transform neighborhoods and communities into healthier places to live, work, and play." 

Grant applicants were required to address one of five health priorities: childhood obestiy, access to care, at-risk youth behavior, health of our aging population, and violence.

Kaiser's Community Benefit Advisory Board evaluated over 100 applications before awarding $610,000 in grants.
