Health Projects Center

Mission

Health Projects Center supports people to age and live safely at home by delivering high quality services and programs in the Monterey Bay Region.

The Big Idea

Health Projects Center hopes to build a community where people age at home with health and dignity, receiving supportive healthcare and social services in the least restrictive environment possible. In times of Covid-19, all of the nonprofit’s services for more than 400 low-income elders are still being continued and have been adapted for safety. The organization works with the Del Mar Caregiver Resource Center, supporting more than 800 local family caregivers annually to provide and sustain quality care for their loved ones, and to take better care of their own physical and mental health. They also support the local healthcare workforce (with emphasis on underserved communities) to more effectively address geriatrics and in-home care management.

Del Mar Caregiver Resource Center has helped me very much, I feel in control of the situation, I feel more positive, less stress and less overwhelmed. I have a better understanding of dementia...it has been wonderful having this program.

We’re In This Together

Nonprofits are more important that ever in this trying time. Monterey County Gives! was created to support the local nonprofit community's Big Ideas (and programs). And thanks to your participation and generosity, Monterey County Gives! raised over $5.3 million for 163 local nonprofits in 2019.

MCGives! has now raised and contributed over $27 million dollars since its inception ten years ago. That’s astounding. And wonderful. Thank you to all our Partners, Sponsors, nonprofit Board Directors, staff and volunteers — and each of our 4,902 donors. We did it, together.

The 2020 Campaign begins November 12.
