Grants of up to $25,000 to California nonprofits and government agencies for early intervention and prevention activities to improve children's health in eligible regions. Funding priorities include support during pregnancy and a child's early years, strengthening a family's connection to the community and accessible health care, and helping children maintain a healthy weight. Eligible programs will impact youth residing or attending school in the Greater Pasadena area, defined as the PUSD attendance area, including the communities of Pasadena, Altadena, Sierra Madre, and some unincorporated parts of Los Angeles County.

Through its competitive grant program, PCHF seeks to:

  • Focus on strategies that emphasize prevention and early intervention, have clear and measurable impact, address well-documented community needs, and maximize limited resources.
  • Focus on strategies that are culturally relevant and responsive to racial/ethnic disparities and reduce long standing inequities in the fundamental building blocks, or “social determinants”, of health.
  • Encourage access to health benefits and services by removing barriers faced by children and families who are isolated and vulnerable.

Funding priorities:

  • Promoting Healthy Early Childhood Development - Optimizing physical, cognitive, and emotional development during pregnancy and throughout the first five years of life.

Breastfeeding, healthy parent-child interactions, early identification of developmental delays, and other practices can be strengthened through a number of promising and evidence-based family strengthening and maternal engagement strategies.

  • Strengthening Family and Community Connections - Enhancing protective factors and social connections that serve as a critical platform for healthy behaviors and development.

A child’s sense of belonging in his or her own family, the connection of the family to their community, and the child’s sense of belonging to a community (including his or her school) can promote positive behaviors throughout the child’s youth. Additionally, a family’s ability to access healthcare resources and services can prevent poor health outcomes.

  • Healthy Weight - Helping children maintain a healthy weight, combat obesity, and boost self-esteem.

A child who is able to maintain a healthy weight has dramatically improved physical and mental health, as well as reduced risk factors for numerous health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, sleep disorders, and poor social and emotional development.
