Wellness Centers

Supporting the healthcare home
of thousands of students

Challenge

The L.A. Trust was established in 1991 by the Board of Education to support its school-based health centers and improve the health of Los Angeles Unified students and their families. In 2001, we became an independent 501(c)3, but we continue our close relationship and unflagging support for this vital student healthcare system. Healthcare disparities remain and students and their families in underserved communities continue to lack access to the primary, mental and oral health resources they need.

Solution

Sixteen Student and Family Wellness Centers have been established to serve both student and community members, with more on the way. The L.A. Trust plays a pivotal role in this Wellness Network, advocating for its expansion, supporting the exchange of best practices through Learning Collaboratives, and connecting the clinics to student health initiatives from The L.A. Trust and others. Student achievement depends on student wellness, and school-based health centers are indispensable. The L.A. Trust is working to ensure that every child has equal access to healthcare and an equal opportunity for success.

Wellness Centers

The L.A. Trust supports LAUSD’s growing network of Wellness Centers with research, best practices, programs and Learning Collaborative conferences. For current clinic hours visit their COVID-19 response page.
