Geographic areas served: Santa Clara County

Programs: Healthy Kids- medical, dental, vision and mental health coverage for children (currently over 11,000) in families who could otherwise not afford insurance for their children.
Children's Health Initiative (a collaboration of multiple key agencies within the county)- conducts outreach to enroll children in programs in which they are eligible i.e. Medical, Healthy Families and Healthy Kids (funded by non federal and state funds), so that they will have regular care by their own doctor.
Healthy Kids Collaboration- the Foundation acts a resource for other counties establishing similar programs providing them with information needed re: number of uninsured, establishing community partnerships, finding funding, etc.

SCFHF’s mission is to promote access to affordable, high quality health care through resource development and outreach on behalf of the underserved members of our community. SCFHF’s focus is on raising funds to support the Healthy Kids program and the Children’s Health Initiative in Santa Clara County. The Children’s Health Initiative (CHI) is a county-wide, community-based effort to ensure that all children in the county whose parents have an income at or below 300% of the federal poverty level have health coverage. The Children’s Health Initiative includes two main elements: 1) an aggressive community outreach effort to identify uninsured children and assist their parents in applying for appropriate health coverage (Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, or Healthy Kids), and 2) the Healthy Kids program, a health coverage option available for uninsured children who do not qualify for state-subsidized health coverage.

Before the start of Healthy Kids, one out of every eight children in Santa Clara County was without health coverage. Presently, there are fewer than 3% of children in Santa Clara County without regular health care support as a result of CHI and the Healthy Kids program.
