Community happenings in Fontana include the Fontana Days, which is an annual celebration and hosted by the Exchange Club.  These traditions date back to 1913 when the city was founded.  Fontana Days are held to help build community spirit with the residents, giving them a reason to come out and get together.  This is a four-day event that includes a car show, parade, Hen Derby, carnival with both rides and games, and a lot of different merchant and food booths to satisfy any age and palate.  The highlight is the parade when many area marching bands as well as other participants throughout Southern California.  The event involves the whole community, encouraging everyone to participate.  All proceeds that are generated with Fontana Days are funneled back into the community that supports local programs for both the young and the elderly residents.

Other areas of interest in Fontana include the Civic Auditorium, which is a 1,000 seat auditorium and arts center.  The City of Fontana supports the auditorium with its strong belief that the arts play an important role in the well-rounded development of a community.  The city feels that the civic center is representative of civic pride in the city and has become a focal point for the creative activities of the citizens of Fontana and the Inland Empire.  The Mary Vagle Science and Nature Center also offers educational activities, such as reptile viewing areas, hands on programs and displays.1 There is also a self-guided hiking trail and afterschool program and summer camp programs.  There are individuals and community groups that volunteer helping to preserve and maintain the center.

With a population of 201,812, Fontana is a city composed of diverse racial groups. Almost 18% of the population lives below poverty line. Similarly, the educational attainment of the populace is low, as 28.4% of the people did not attend or graduate from high school. Due to a large proportion of the immigrant population, many residents struggle with unemployment, which further exacerbates their health concerns.

Approximately 8.8% of the population is dealing with some form of disability and common mental health problems include depression, anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder, ethnic problems, family issues, sexual issues, and spiritual concerns. The percentage of people who reported a mental health problem within the last year was 14.2%.2 Similarly, suicide rate is a sizeable 12.3 per 100,000. Homelessness, economic problems, illness, lack of insurance, and access to healthcare is aggravating mental health issues. Almost 64% of the population resides in an area with low healthcare provision.3

Despite the grim prospects as a non-profit organization, Kaiser Permanente has introduced affordable healthcare plans and uses preventative measures to promote communal health. It aims to provide equitable access to better healthcare and addresses issues such as mental health disorders, obesity, and violence.
