Programs:

CSHC is the lead organization in California advocating for policies that support the expansion and sustainability of school health centers, as well as a key player on a broader array of school health and mental health issues and children's access to health coverage and care.
Some of our activities include: legislative advocacy; coordination with state agencies; partnerships with other children's and health care advocates; and work with managed-care organizations. We helped passing legislation in California to create a statewide program for school health centers. While this bill has not been funded due to the budget crisis, its passage has raised the visibility of school health centers as an important part of the health care safety net.   Our current focus is on obtaining a federal authorizing program. 

Mission:
The California School Health Centers Association (CSHC) promotes the health and academic success of children and youth by increasing access to the high quality health care and support services provided by school health centers.  By putting health care where kids are – in schools – school health centers increase access to care and take health problems out of the classroom so that teachers can teach and students can learn. 
CSHC pursues its mission through two strategies: policy advocacy and capacity building. We advocate for organizational, state, local and federal policies that support school health centers. Simultaneously, we build capacity among schools and communities to start and operate high quality school health centers. 
 
Our goal is to make school health centers an integral and sustainable part of the health care and educational systems.
