The Kaiser Insurance company has always strived to bolster the communities they serve. This is why Kaiser Permanente Southern California is encouraging mothers and daughters to join up and pursue their higher education and career goals, which will benefit individuals, families and the community as a whole. The idea of helping the community is an important motive in the Kaiser Georgia, Ohio, Mid-Atlantic States, California, Colorado, Northwest and Hawaii networks, but it is especially significant in the Southern California communities where the organization got its start back in the 1940s. These efforts are part of a Kaiser Permanente Southern California educational outreach program, which recently hosted its 16th annual Mother and Daughter Learning Conference in Baldwin Park. The program was established in 1993 to encourage Latinas to focus on college and has had many success stories, such as Araceli Mata who joined with her mother with aspirations of pursuing a higher education and a career in law enforcement. They enrolled in the program the first year that Kaiser Insurance sponsored it and Ms. Mata has since gone on to earn a bachelor’s degree from California State Polytechnical University and establish a career as a police officer with the San Bernardino Police Department. Her efforts with the program have even gone full circle, as she has been volunteering with the Mother and Daughter Program for six years and plans to continue. There have been many success stories similar to this one as a result of the program. Those who have worked in the program believe it is the result of focusing on the rewards of attending college rather than focusing on the dangers and consequences of dropping out of high school, and the fact that mothers are actively involved in their daughter’s academic and career goals. Community programs like this can be found all across the nation, from Kaiser Georgia to Kaiser Northwest. The idea is that helping the communities Kaiser Insurance serves helps everyone live healthier and more productive lives, whether they are members of the health plan or not.
