BOTHELL, Wash., Jan. 23, 2024 – The MolinaCares Accord (“MolinaCares”), together with Molina Healthcare of Washington, recently donated $350,000 in grants to further advance programs enhancing health equity. 

Washington state ranks second in the country for most unhoused people per capita, according to data from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. And food and housing costs continue to rise, often impacting the resources available for many to access health care, particularly those in underserved communities.

MolinaCares will help extend services in the following areas:

  • Supporting indigenous families in accessing culturally-congruent prenatal and post-partum care, as well as childbirth assistance from indigenous doulas;
  • Funding innovative support in Latinx communities in rural areas for those dealing with depression; 
  • Increasing timely access to care for people with autism by training behavioral health providers located in primary care settings in a curriculum designed to support caregivers;
  • Supporting the health of children and adults who have been or currently are unhoused;
  • Offering youth and families impacted by a diabetes diagnosis with a traditional camp experience and general support strategies; 
  • Identifying and addressing the social determinants of health needs of Latinx communities; and
  • Supporting the training and certification of culturally responsive peers to support high-risk transitional age youth and their families.  

Organizations that received grants include:

“At CCEW, we are thrilled to partner with organizations that share our mission to combat homelessness and provide expanded services to families that struggle with this issue,” said Rob McCann, president and CEO of CCEW. “The MolinaCares grant will support a care coordination program for individuals now living in one of our Haven apartments and offer wrap-around support to meet their specific needs.”
