Providing special care for special needs

Some of your neighbors in Monterey County face high barriers to health. That’s why Montage Health invested $469,481 and 212 volunteer hours in 2021 to helping those at risk because of age, domestic violence, behavioral health issues, HIV, poverty, or other factors. Discover how we make it easier for everyone to get the care they need.

Services that make a difference

You or someone you care about may benefit from:

  • Bereavement program – One-on-one and group grief support to cope with a death
  • Food donations – Gifts of extra prepared foods from Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula to local nonprofits
  • Grants – Support for organizations that help people who have special needs
  • Recovery Center – Program to restore health, relationships, quality of life, and self-respect in adults affected by substance abuse

Help for people experiencing homelessness

Medical care isn’t always top of mind for people who struggle each day to find a safe place to sleep and enough food to eat. So Montage Health brings providers to people who don’t have homes and works to reduce homelessness with several initiatives:

  • Mobile clinic – Travels to public areas that are easy to access for people experiencing homelessness
  • Multidisciplinary outreach team – A collaboration between Montage Health, Monterey Police Department, the district attorney’s office, Monterey County Behavioral Health, Adult Protective Services, YWCA, and others, to address social issues in a constructive way
  • Recurrent ER visitor program – Help for people to prevent and manage illnesses so they don’t need to come to the emergency room as often
  • Grant funding for Gathering for Women – a local organization that provides homeless women with supportive resources and a caring community
