Community Grants Program


This year, Glendale Memorial's Annual Community Grants Program awarded $110,464 to collaborating organizations, which partnered together to respond to pressing health and wellness needs in our greater Glendale community.

Dignity Health’s Community Grants Program focuses on awarding funds to provide services to underserved populations including the economically poor, women and children, and the mentally or physically disabled. Grantees are working to address needs identified in the most recent Community Needs Health Assessment - including obesity, mental health, diabetes, alcohol and substance abuse,and cardiovascular disease.  Four groups each comprising multiple organizations were awarded funds.

They include:

  1. Ascencia, Corporation for Supportive Housing, and Northeast Valley Health Corporation
  2. Glendale Healthy Kids, Glendale Community Free Clinic, and Walk Bike Glendale
  3. Glendale Parks and Open Space Foundation, Glendale Community Services, & Parks Department, and Glendale Unified School District
  4. Wellness Works, YWCA Glendale, and Trauma Resource Institute

Our Dignity Health Community Grants Program seeks to partner with other community organizations whose efforts embody Dignity Health's five core values: Dignity, Collaboration, Justice, Stewardship, and Excellence.  

The Community Grants Program is funded by contributions from Dignity Health member hospitals and supports Glendale Memorial Hospital in its mission to provide compassionate, high-quality and affordable health services.
