Who We Are

We are a 501-c-3 nonprofit organization dedicated to ensuring that vulnerable school children have access to quality care delivered by NY's 250 school-based health centers.  We work hand-in-hand with the NY School-Based Health Alliance, the membership and advocacy organization of NY's school-based health centers.


What We Do

We work to promote, strengthen, and expand access to NY's school-based health centers by offering technical assistance, training, and data services. We also work to build public awareness of the vital role and enormous potential of school-based health centers.
