Population & Community Health2020Orange County's United WayOn March 15, Orange County United Way (OCUW) established the OCUW Pandemic Relief Fund to support our community’s most vulnerable residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. This fund provides support to low-income individuals and families at imminent risk of homelessness, the current population experiencing homelessness, low-income students, and partner non-profits in need of critical infrastructure support. The OCUW Pandemic Relief Fund’s homelessness prevention efforts include the provision of $500 in direct financial assistance for rent, utilities, food, and other basic needs to households impacted by the economic devastation of COVID-19. To ensure we reach those most in need as quickly as possible, we enlisted our network of 40+ nonprofit service providers who know their clients’ needs and who could quickly get emergency relief funds into their hands. Our aim was to immediately help vulnerable populations most at risk of homelessness, but for whom financial assistance from the California Employment Development Department and other social service bodies was taking weeks to arrive. After establishing the Fund, we soon identified a gap in service for newly vulnerable individuals not connected to a service provider. In order to fill this gap, OCUW collaborated with Amazon Web Services (AWS) in April to design and build AssistOC, a new mobile and web enabled application for processing claims for pandemic relief funds. Approved claimants verify that their income/employment has been negatively impacted by COVID-19 and that their income does not exceed 80% of the Area Median Income. If approved, they receive $500 in financial assistance via a prepaid debit card in as little as one week. To date, emergency assistance through our Pandemic Relief Fund has helped 4,000+ households meet basic needs such as feeding their children, remaining in their home, and staying safe. Our Pandemic Relief Fund efforts have been wide-reaching and also include providing books to students, support for homeless shelters, and vital infrastructure support in response to needs identified by 211OC, food banks, and other non-profit partners. OCUW is continually monitoring needs being assessed by 211OC, the comprehensive health and human services referral system for Orange County. With the influx of needs resulting from COVID-19, 211OC has received more than 30,000 calls for housing and food assistance since the start of the pandemic.

Population & Community Health2020Keck School of Medicine of USCThe rapid spread of the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic threatens to overwhelm our healthcare system. To effectively combat this threat mitigation (social distancing) and control (testing, identification of positive cases, and contact tracing with quarantine) are critical. Efficient contact tracing by public health nurses on such a large scale as we are potentially going to face is unlikely, thus, efficient, technologically enabled tools are necessary as aids in the fight against the novel coronavirus. At present, nurses and physicians are asking positive cases to inform their close contacts that they have been exposed, but this is passive surveillance and does not work as well as active surveillance. This tool provides a mechanism to conduct active surveillance for contacts and most important, delivers the public health message to contacts that they should quarantine for 14 days, thus interrupting transmission. Thus, this proposal seeks to test an online contact tracing tool that we developed to perform virtual messaging to contacts of confirmed COVID-19 cases.75,000 12 months or less

In 2020, Mercy Chefs responded to four major hurricanes and numerous other disasters through the county, maintaining the strictest COVID-19 safety measures and adapting to the new landscape with excellence. Mercy Chefs is already working toward preparation for 2021’s fire season.

National Health Foundation

Capacity Building to Expand Health Services for People Experiencing Homelessness
Opportunities to house the homeless, such as Project Homekey, are expanding in Los Angeles to the extent that even Mayor Garcetti is questioning the capacity of homeless service providers to meet the crushing demand for services. Furthermore, as Medi-Cal moves toward reimbursing health plans for their collaboration with community-based organizations in the provision of housing and supportive services, there is more opportunity than ever before to have maximum impact on this local crisis. All housing and homeless service providers, especially small-to-medium sized organizations with energy to grow, must be ready, willing and able to rise to the occasion and serve our most vulnerable neighbors. For that reason, National Health Foundation (NHF) is requesting $450,000 over the next 36 months to significantly expand capacity to hire key staff, enhance sustainability, capitalize on these emerging opportunities, and ultimately, increase impact. NHF currently serves approximately 2,000 individuals annually but with expanded capacity, expects to double this number.

Play Equity Fund

Play Equity Fund-Youth Sports
Play Equity Fund is committed to shifting the dialogue around youth sports and educating the public regarding the physical and mental health benefits youth achieve through sport and play. Youth sport and structured play can transform the lives of young people by contributing to their physical, emotional, social and academic development. Research supports the positive relationship between physical activity and positive youth development. But not all youth have equal access to quality sport and play opportunities. PEF believes that all children, regardless of race or background, deserve access and opportunity to achieve at high levels — and an investment in quality sport and play programs for our youth is an investment in the future of our society. Through our Strategic Communications efforts we will continue to create compelling content and storytelling that amplifies the collective power of youth sports as a foundational element in building healthy, thriving young people, communities and society. This narrative change will empower youth to engage in positive health outcomes and contribute to greater public awareness around the benefits of sports-based youth development.

The study had a national impact. Since then, the veteran population has changed rapidly with the overall veteran population declining. The recent effects of the pandemic, shifts in the use of guard and reserve, a concentration of military service among a smaller population, and changing demographic profiles increasing women veterans make this an ideal time to re-evaluate the needs of the veteran population in Los Angeles.

St. Francis High School of La Canada Flintridge

Mental Health & Wellness Program
Our experience through the last 18 months of virtual education has led us to an understanding that mental health and wellness continue to be of utmost importance for our students. We believe the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the need for increased focus on the mental well-being of adolescents. These young people already had a great deal of stressors to navigate. The pandemic has put these stressors into hyperdrive. Our focus remains on the enrichment of the minds and hearts of each young man entrusted to our care. Transitioning back to “on campus” life will be a challenge, especially for those students who spent all of last school year remotely. That said, our intent is to further enhance our existing wellness program, and to provide greater space and opportunity, so that our students can have greater and more frequent access to activities and resources which kept them well in body and mind. The creation of this additional wellness space seeks to also lift the perceived stigma of "counseling," and open up the perception of wellness as a regular and healthy habit. The creation of support groups, specific to Coping Skills and Substance Use/Abuse education are a few examples of what we will initiate. Finally, having a Wellness Counselor on staff is a blessing for us. Turning an entire faculty into capable wellness counselors is our goal, and we intend to invest in training and education to do just that.

HealthLink Project
In 2014, St. Mary’s Family Clinic embarked on a small pilot project to link uninsured patients in the Emergency Department (ED) and hospital in-patient units to a medical home with the support of a patient navigator. The pilot identified three key limitations to an expanded program in both the needs of the patients and the provision of services offered at St. Mary: we only had one patient navigator which limited the number of patients who could be serviced; the navigator had greater success with higher functioning patients than homeless patients or those suffering from mental illness and substance use disorder; and the Family Clinic lacked psychiatric services and had to refer out for psychiatric care. The largest barriers to accessing care for these patients were mental health, homelessness, transportation, and immigration status.

Expanding Graduate Medical Education in California
California is experiencing a crisis: There are not enough physicians to meet the needs of the population, and the situation is worsening over time. The total number of active patient care physicians in California declined from 2013 to 2015. Shortages exist in many specialties, such as psychiatry and family medicine, but also across geographic locations, particularly in the Inland Empire, the San Joaquin Valley, and the northern and Sierra regions. A major contributing factor is insufficient numbers of physicians completing residency training to replace those who retire. To meet the growing demand and alleviate a public health crisis, California must enact policy to ensure an adequate physician workforce. One major way to impact the future physician workforce is to expand graduate medical education (GME), especially in underserved regions of the state and for underserved populations. Studies have shown that physicians tend to stay and practice near where they complete their residency. In fact, California has the highest retention rate in the nation of physicians who complete GME in California, with 70.4% of physicians remaining in California after GME. Yet for decades California has underinvested in residency training programs and today does not have enough slots to offer medical students trained in the state.

California continues to face challenges in providing adequate primary care to meet the state’s needs. These challenges include supply, distribution, and demographic characteristics of its primary care physician workforce. From 2012 to 2015, the number of insured Californians dropped from 17.2% to 8.6% because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This increase of insured patients has increased demand, which has further exacerbated the primary care workforce shortages.

UCLA Project CARE: Training Healthcare Providers to Provide Mental Health Intervention to Children with Palliative Care Needs
Each year in the US, approximately 100,000 children die and 500,000 children cope with life-threatening conditions. There is more recognition of the importance of mental health care in reducing symptoms and suffering of critically-ill patients (Sterling et al, 2015, Douglas, 2015; Kazak 2010, and others) as well as promoting adherence to medical regimens (Evan et al, 2013). In turn, preventative mental health interventions such as anxiety management and symptom communication training can play a role in reduction of ER visits and other costly medically-based services. It becomes even more critical for vulnerable populations, such as children with palliative care needs that require specialized symptom management on an urgent and chronic basis.

VIP Community Mental Health Center

Expansion of the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) Subspecialty Pediatric Clinic at the LAC+USC Hub clinic
Positive outcomes for children affected by FASD are dependent on appropriate interventions during early childhood provided by a multidisciplinary team of health and mental health professionals. Therefore, VIP needs to expand its specialized health system that addresses the specific medical, developmental and mental health needs of children prenatally exposed to alcohol and their caregivers to meet the demands of the county. The clinic will: 1) expand the identification and treatment services to children with FASD; 2) coordinate with local agencies to assist children requiring FASD intervention and treatment in the region; and 3) provide a training program for pediatricians, psychologists, therapists and paraprofessionals to enhance identification and services in the community. Outcomes will 1) improve the appropriate diagnosis of FASD in young children; 2) improve the delivery of healthcare services to foster children with FASD in LA County; 3) improve health, mental health, behavior and educational outcomes for individuals receiving treatment at the FASD Subspecialty Clinic; 4) promote awareness of FASD throughout LA County; and 5) develop the first FASD pediatric mental health clinic that will include mental health, case management, occupational therapy, speech therapy, psychiatry, advocacy, and support services to caregivers in one place.

To ensure its clients have the best-possible chance of success, WCA seeks to add four LCSW positions to its Clinical Services team – one for each satellite site – to provide one-on-one therapy and counseling to high-acuity clients, promoting their engagement and retention in programs and increasing their chances of transitioning to permanent housing. Additionally, they will supervise a cohort of interns from the University of Southern California’s Suzanne Dworak-Peck School of Social Work that are in their post-graduate program and working to attain licensure, further increasing WCA’s clinical services capacity.

Whittier College

Creating a Healthy Life Lab Program at Whittier College to Promote Campus Health & Wellness and Launch a Diverse Cohort of Students into Health Professions
As Covid-19's impact diminishes in the summer and fall of 2021, Whittier College plans for students to return to campus. This presents unprecedented health and wellness challenges to our diverse student population disproportionately impacted by the Pandemic. The ongoing response to Covid-19 at the personal and community level, its impact on physical and mental health, will be added to the significant pre-Covid health and wellness challenges already faced by this generation of college students. Exacerbating this situation is the fact that Whittier will be dealing in essence with two in-coming classes simultaneously: first-year students and sophomores who were never on campus during their first year in college because of Covid-19.
