The Mission of the L.A. Trust

To improve student health and increase readiness to learn through access, advocacy, and programs

History of the L.A. Trust

The Trust was formed through a 1991 resolution of the LAUSD Board of Education to address the myriad and significant health challenges many LAUSD students faced. From 1994-2002, the Trust provided substantial financial support to the direct operation of the six original LAUSD school-based health clinics. At the same time, the Trust facilitated the opening of new school-based clinics (currently 34 clinics) with business plans that could be self-sufficient and sustainable without ongoing direct funding. Since then, the Trust has served as support for school-based health clinics and health partnerships through a broad range of school-linked programs, providing in excess of 200,000 healthcare visits annually to the elementary, middle and high school students of LAUSD.

Through thoughtful planning, each full-service community clinic will open onto the campus to allow full student access, and also maintain a separate street-side entrance for members of the local community.

The Wellness Center Network integrates and coordinates care for students and their families with a focus on prevention, education, early intervention and screening by:

  • Connecting students and families to preventive and primary care resources
  • Leveraging a variety of LAUSD and community assets within a school complex.

Our 2009-2013 strategic plan is specifically dedicated to the Wellness Centers and the development of the surrounding network to provide preventative and early intervention services, linkage to community-based resources, access to all children and families and linkage for children and families to health insurance.
