Mission Statement

The Center serves as a catalyst for community health improvement by addressing health issues in collaboration with funders and partners. The Center’s primary goal is to assist communities to develop the ideas, skills and influence required to play an integral role in improving their overall health and well-being. To accomplish these goals, the Center supports efforts to improve access and use of data, advance and contribute to evidence-based practice, evaluate results and communicate lessons learned to interested sectors and stakeholders.


Over the past several years, nonprofits and public agencies throughout California faced vast increases in the need for their services, while resources diminished. In our funding area, Sierra Health Foundation could not fill these gaps alone. We had two options: either reduce funding and programming, or innovate and do our work differently. We chose to do our work differently, and the Center for Health Program Management is the beginning of that innovation.

We founded the Center for Health Program Management in 2012 in recognition of a statewide need for increased community capacity to engage in the planning, implementation and assessment of efforts that seek to address the health needs of California’s underserved. The Center is part of the Sierra Health Foundation network, but is a separate public benefit corporation. The Center offers statewide reach and broad opportunities for funding and partnering.

The Center for Health Program Management helps communities tap into and build their resources for maximum impact. The Center creates a hub for expertise and funding to be applied in creative ways, while leveraging leadership and operational support from Sierra Health Foundation.
