LAKE ELSINORE, Calif., Aug. 1, 2023 – The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”), in collaboration with Molina Healthcare of California (“Molina”), recently presented $395,000 to Social Work Action Group (SWAG) to help address homelessness in Lake Elsinore and surrounding areas.
This grant is the latest in MolinaCares’ efforts focused on homelessness in southern California. In 2022, MolinaCares partnered with Healthcare in Action (HIA) to expand health care, help treat substance use, and provide mental health services to unhoused older adults in San Diego and L.A. Counties.
MolinaCares and HIA are teaming up again, joined by SWAG and the City of Elsinore, to support the homeless population in Lake Elsinore through a host of programs and initiatives, such as mobile medical services, health education, and coordination of care by case managers.
The funds from the most recent MolinaCares grant will support SWAG programs that serve as resources to homeless communities, including SWAG’s dedicated software application and respite care programs.
“MolinaCares is dedicated to improving the health and well-being of underserved populations across the state,” said Abbie Totten, plan president of Molina Healthcare of California. “We are grateful for the opportunity to celebrate the power of partnership and join these valued organizations to help individuals in need of housing and other critical resources.”
“Partnerships play a vital role in our journey to end homelessness as they unite diverse stakeholders and amplify our collective impact,” said Lake Elsinore Mayor Natasha Johnson. “Together, we possess the transformative power to build a brighter future for those experiencing homelessness.”
