Year End Giving Campaign (step 1)

Your LA Can Be a City of Equality

We can have equal access to quality healthcare in every neighborhood. To get there, we all must Dream Bigger.

In Los Angeles today, two children can have vastly different lives and health outcomes—depending on which zip code they're born in. Your support will change your city.

Together, we can:

  • Double the number of doctors in South LA by 2021
  • Attract all the assets we need for community health in South LA
  • Increase life expectancy in South LA within a generation

Let’s Dream Bigger, LA.

The new Martin Luther King, Jr. Community Hospital welcomed its first patients in 2015. With determination, vision, and outstanding leadership, our private, nonprofit hospital is dedicated to transforming the health and wellness of South Los Angeles and becoming a national model for safety-net healthcare delivery.
