What We Do

Using a school-connected, integrated approach, CHHCS provides experience and expertise in:

  • Navigating the children’s health and education policy worlds at the federal, state, and local levels, and advancing school-connected systems and on-the-ground programs and services that take into account the evolving policy landscape
  • Applying the latest evidence-based best practices and what works to achieve results
  • Maximizing funding and sustainability by identifying current and future revenue streams, outlining concrete steps to secure that funding, and building organizational capacity to achieve sustainability
