Listos California Emergency Preparedness Campaign
In 2019, California Governor Gavin Newsom and the State Legislature appropriated $50 million to fund the California For All Emergency Preparedness Campaign, a disaster-preparedness initiative housed at the Governor’s Office of Emergency Services (Cal OES). This campaign, dubbed Listos California, is a statewide effort to boost disaster preparedness by engaging over one million of the most vulnerable Californians and connecting them with culturally and linguistically competent support through a grass-roots, people-centered approach.
Valley Vision supports the Listos California Campaign by bolstering local capacity and statewide disaster preparedness by providing regional governments and community based organizations with supports needed to directly engage their residents and prepare their communities for a disaster. In its role, Valley Vision oversees the selection and management of vendors, contractors, and other experts needed to develop the tools, assets and outreach supports needed to engage at least one million diverse and vulnerable Californian’s with appropriate emergency preparedness messages and content. Additionally, Valley Vision aids in the coordination of dozens of community based organizations across the state that are responsible for the direct engagement of residents.

Community Health Improvement Plan: San Joaquin County
Recognizing the need for targeted, coordinated priorities and goals to drive change, more than 100 stakeholders contributed to the development of the Community Health Improvement Plan for San Joaquin County. The CHIP was created to guide collaborative, long-term efforts to address community health needs throughout the county. Knowing that even a well detailed plan will not fully mobilize the actions desired, the Healthier Community Collaborative asked Valley Vision to help advance priorities, goals, and strategies outlined in the Community Health Improvement Plan (CHIP).
Valley Vision seeks to align efforts, as well as expand resources and capacity to address the priorities outlined in the CHIP. This is done by streamlining communication among stakeholders, analyzing assets and gaps, creating tools and guides for implementation, and promoting emerging funding opportunities. To ensure results, Valley Vision is encouraging common metrics that can be used across providers so that progress can be validated.

Community Health Needs Assessment: UC Davis Medical Center (2016)
All nonprofit hospitals must conduct a Community Health Needs Assessment (CHNA) every three years and adopt an implementation strategy to meet the community health needs identified through the CHNA.
The CHNA must define the community served by the hospital, solicit input from broad interests of the community, assess the health needs of the community, prioritize those health needs and identify potential measures and resources available to address the health needs.
This document is the final 2016 report for the UC Davis Medical Center service area, authored by the Valley Vision health team.
