In 2018, Episcopal Impact Fund celebrated its 40th year of service as the outreach arm of the Diocese of California. In addition to funding 29 nonprofits addressing the root causes of poverty in all parts of the Bay Area, Episcopal Impact Fund made substantial progress on three special initiatives:
Improving mental healthcare for pregnant women and new mothers by founding and supporting a perinatal mental healthcare program at the former St Luke’s Hospital in San Francisco’s Mission District. Thanks to Episcopal Impact Fund funding, services are available without charge.
Addressing environmental injustice in low-income areas of Oakland by accessing and administering a California grant to plant trees and create a community garden.
Supporting congregational efforts to build affordable housing on their property with grants and guidance.
