Advancing School-Connected Strategies for Children's Health and School Success

The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools (CHHCS) is a nonpartisan policy, resource and technical assistance center with a history of developing school-connected strategies for better health and education outcomes for children. CHHCS partners with foundations, government health and education agencies, school districts, and providers across the country to support their school-connected initiatives.

Areas of Expertise

CHHCS works with state- and district-level leaders to integrate & prioritize strategies ranging from targeted interventions to broader prevention efforts, in order to tailor student well being solutions to the unique context of each school & district.
Through its continuous research and thought leadership, CHHCS identifies current & future revenue streams, as well as other ways to sustain successful strategies apart from funding.
CHHCS is a leading expert in school-connected strategies that help vulnerable students, such as low-income, immigrant & refugee, and physically or emotionally challenged children, stay healthy and succeed in school.

We envision a society where school and community environments foster health and opportunities for all students to thrive.
