The ABC began investing in the Los Angeles area in 1996 with needs assessments and the implementation of various programs in 1997. Because of the vast geography and dispersed ABC employee populations, creation of a comprehensive strategy has been a challenge until recently. The ABC has implemented the Provider Resource Grant project that allows employees of ABC companies to nominate their caregiver to receive a grant for quality enhancements. Included in this initiative is a provider survey to determine what other services these providers could/would provide in the future. Data from this survey will be used to help shape the ABC 2000 community strategy.
