Review from Guidestar
January 23, 2014

This foundation no longer exists, at least not under the name Santa Clara Family Health Foundation. It has been rebranded to Healthier Kids Foundation. I will not say anything other than to suggest that anyone looking to donate to this foundation do an internet search for the executive director, by name, and the words "family health fiasco." There have been allegations made that might be of potential concern to some donors. Other helpful search terms might include the name of one of the female members of the Santa Clara County Board of Supervisors. It is interesting to note that the foundation's staff and board of directors are now larger than ever, but what exactly the foundation does is hard to discern.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Replace the CEO and stop all political involvement, including donations in support of ballot measures and candidates.

The Santa Clara Family Health Foundation (SCFHF) is dedicated to ensuring that ALL children in our community have access to high quality health care. The stories and experiences of families and young people and extensive research have demonstrated the critical value of the children's health coverage SCFHF provides not only to the children and families who are enrolled through the Children Health Initiative (CHI) but also to overall public health and well-being of the community. SCFHF is a leader in raining awareness about the need for and value of children's coverage and engaging all sectors of the community in supporting and sustaining it, especially now in times of budget cuts.

The Great!

I work for PACT, a co-founder of the historic Santa Clara County Children's Health Initiative that has become a model replicated throughout CA and the country. PACT continues to partner with SCHFH as a key leader and advocate for children's health.

As a contract manager for the City of San Jose, I have managed the Children's Health Initiative agreeement for the last four years (the City provides the foundation $2.1 million dollars annually to provide health insurance to San Jose youth). My overall experience has been very positive. The Foundation was timely in submitting reports and consistently met or exceeded contract goals. Staff always acted professionally and promptly.

I have volunteered to work the Foundation's Annual Wine Tasting Event for the past 4-5 years. I enjoy working with the Foundation staff because I find them to be a group of extremely caring and committed individuals who strongly believe that all children should have access to healthcare. They are committed to the mission of raising funds to help provide health care to all uninsured children in Santa Clara County. The Wine Tasting Event is an enjoyable way to learn about as well as support the mission of the Foundation.

As a donor to Santa Clara Family Health Foundation, I truly believe in the mission and work of the organization. Not only does the organization provide a vital service to the community it serves, but it also sets a precedence for providing access to health care services for all children. Santa Clara Family Health Foundation has been, and continues to be, a progressive movement towards ensuring that children are healthier so they can perform better in school and grow into productive adults.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

recognizing the outstanding contribution it makes to the community. Without its development and fundraising activities, many low-income children would be without access to critical health care services.

As a client being served by the Santa Clara family Health Foundation, I didn't hesitate to remark what a great foundation this is as I have been benefiting by its many services that help low-income families receive medical services. As a client, they foundation has allowed me to receive many different medical services at a really low cost that enables me to pay the rest for such services. These vary from orthopedics, to dental, regular check-ups, emergency visits, express care, and even hospital stays. I would recommend this program to everybody out there since it is a non-profit organization that is there to lend a helping hand to all of those low-income families who have difficulties receiving medical services due to financial issues. With SCFHF, medical insurance becomes an opportunity available to everybody and enables thousands to receive proper treatment at a low cost.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The many different medical services that have been provided to me and my family thanks to its programs that enables a proper medical experience to be available to everybody regardless of class, or legal status.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not change the organization at all!

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

that I am able to recive medical services when I'm sick since SCFHF enables me to cover the very low costs of it after they have covered most of the treatment with theri own budget.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

quite amazing. They are really helpful and speak the languages that people need such as spanish. They are also very effective and act efficiently.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

really make medical insurance a reality to thousands of kids and adults out there who can't be treated due to financial issues.

Ways to make it better...

My experience has been great so far; no complaints.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

That they are lacking some support from many different companies and agencies that should be donating more money to the program so that it can sustain itself and continue helping thousands receive medical services.

One thing I'd also say is that...

this organization is one of the best non-profits that exist in the state of california.

SCFH Foundation raises funds to provide health insurance coverage for children who do not qualify for government programs. I am impressed by its clarity of purpose and its dedication to gaining universal coverage for children in the County. The Foundation is an excellent champion of its cause and has maintain civic involvement in its funding through difficult economic times.

The Great!
