About Us

Established in 1996, the Soledad Community Health Care District Foundation is a registered 501 (c)(3) public benefit corporation in the state of California. Acting as the philanthropic arm of the health care district, the foundation works to support the services and programs of the Soledad Medical Clinic and the Eden Valley Care Center.

Our dedicated Board of Trustees volunteer their time to promote and work towards improving the health of the Soledad community and govern the affairs of the foundation including expenditure decisions, grant applications, and development strategies.

The Foundation is completely supported by people like you who want to make a difference and get involved through volunteering, donating, and planned giving. We invite you to learn more about the Foundation and consider the ways your partnership with the Foundation can improve the health of the community of Soledad.

Soledad is the fastest growing community in Monterey County. Compared to the more urban areas of Monterey County, Soledad has a statistically lower average household income, a larger family size, a larger percentage of minorities, and our population is primarily employed in agriculture.

During the next five years the city’s population growth is expected to continue growing rapidly. As the community grows, so does the health care needs. Identifying and meeting the needs of the Soledad community is our first priority, thus the Soledad Rural Health Clinic seeks to expand programs and services to serve the growing local demand.

The population of Soledad at recent census was just under 23,000. The clinic is accessed by a population that includes the surrounding communities and rural areas in south Monterey Count. This adds an additional 30,000 people to the area that seeks our Medical Clinic services.
