About the Foundation

The New York School-Based Health Foundation grew out of the former NYS Coalition for School Based Health Centers, which was re-branded as an affiliate of the National School Based Health Alliance and is now recognized as the New York School-Based Health Alliance. Complementing the member and advocacy focus of the Alliance, the Foundation is the ©3 non-profit arm with a broad mission of education, research and support for the growth and expansion of SBHCs, as well as improving access for all children and youth statewide. 

Our Mission:

  • To fund education and research endeavors to increase understanding of the school-based model
  • Improve access to comprehensive, high-quality primary care, including medical, mental, oral, and community health services, for all children and youth statewide through school-based health centers by promoting high-quality service delivery in partnership with the Alliance
  • Promote growth and expansion of school-based health centers.
