The grant to The Fresno Center’s Mass Shooting Victims Support Program will provide additional hours for mental health services and counseling to the victims’ families as well as case management oversight and support. Wellness classes, meditation, yoga, and other resources also will be made available to those affected by the tragedy.

“We are committed to helping the community heal from this tragedy and want to provide mental health support to those in need.” — Wade Nogy, Kaiser Permanente Fresno area manager
“I am very appreciative of the support from Kaiser Permanente,” said Pao Yang, CEO of The Fresno Center. “This grant will help us to expand our services lending to a one-stop crisis support center for incidences of disaster. Our aim is to provide relief in these unfortunate situations.”

Kaiser’s Previous Grants to FIRM

For the past two years, Kaiser Permanente also has provided a $150,000 grant to Fresno Interdenominational Refugee Ministries to help reduce barriers to treatment and increase the capacity to serve the mental health needs of Southeast Asian immigrants.
FIRM works in conjunction with Stone Soup Fresno and The Fresno Center to support Fresno County’s Hmong, Laotian and Cambodian communities.
“We are committed to helping the community heal from this tragedy and want to provide mental health support to those in need,” Kaiser Permanente Fresno Senior Vice President and Area Manager Wade Nogy said.
“We hope this grant along with the others we’ve provided in the past to The Fresno Center will help to break down the stigma associated with mental health issues in the Southeast Asian community.”
