Healthy Kids, Healthy Families®
Healthy Kids, Healthy Families (HKHF) is part of Health Care Service Corporation’s ongoing commitment to the health and well-being of the children and families across the states in which we operate. Throughout 2020, more than 400,000 people were impacted as a result of our investments in nonprofit organizations that offer sustainable, measurable programs in these areas:
- Physical activity
- Preventing disease
- Managing disease
- Promoting safe environments
We welcome the opportunity to partner with nonprofit organizations that share our goals, and we invite you to visit our grants page to learn more about how we collaborate and to read about the programs supported through this effort. Contact us or visit our Making an Impact page to learn more about our most recent updates and activities through this initiative.
Examples of major partners and programs in our focus areas include:
Through our partnership with the American Lung Association, we work directly with health centers to improve the quality of care for children with asthma by engaging providers, community leaders and educators, resulting in improved long-term care outcomes.
Whether it’s transforming a dirt field into a playground in Montana, supporting a new riverfront park in Tulsa or sponsoring Chicago’s bike-sharing program, we are committed to providing safe places to walk, run, bike and play.
Our 26 Care Vans® travel throughout our states to increase access to care for children and adults in underserved communities.
We partner with Feeding America to support 26 local food banks and other key organizations in our communities to eliminate food insecurity and remove barriers to adequate nutrition.
If your organization shares our goal of improving the health and wellness of children and their families through nutrition, physical activity, disease prevention and management or supporting safe environments, we invite you to apply online.
In addition to aligning with one or more of our four areas of focus, we require criteria for review of all grant proposals:
- The organization must hold a 501(c)(3) tax status
- The organization must not have written policies that discriminate against individuals based on race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religious creed, national origin, physical or mental disability, or protected veteran status or any other characteristic protected by law.
- The grant must directly impact individuals in one of these states: Illinois, Montana, New Mexico, Oklahoma or Texas
- The program must be measurable and demonstrate how the goals will be met as defined in the grant proposal
Our new grants management platform is now available. We hope this change will give your organization an efficient process, leading to more time with communities where we live, work and play. If you have questions on how to create an account, read our How to Log In guide.
