Who We Are

15 Centers and Growing

The Los Angeles Trust for Children’s Health supports academic success by improving the health of the 590,000 students of the Los Angeles Unified School District. Since its inception in 1991, the nonprofit organization has spearheaded health and wellness programs at LAUSD. A recent flagship project is the groundbreaking 15 school-based Wellness Centers that provide full primary care medical services, dental, vision and mental care to the students, and even better, to their families and the community around the school.

What We Do

The L.A. Trust supports the school-based health programs and clinics of LAUSD in three ways:

  1. Optimize the 15 Wellness Centers to provide integrated physical, mental and oral health care services for students, their families and the community.
  2. Promote an array of health programs to students.
  3. Advocate for health policy change at the school district and at all levels of government.
