Adolescent health center project at Northeast High School

The Foundation's Community Care Funding Partners Program is an eight-year matching grant program designed to encourage community and regional corporations and foundations to support small-scale local health centers serving the medically indigent.This grant supports a primary care health center at Northeast High School. In addition to students at the High School, the Clinic will serve an adjacent junior high located on Northeast's campus. Together the two schools enroll 2,000 students, half minority and half from blue collar white families. Operational management of the project will be provided under contract with the Adolescent Resources Council, which is a nonprofit agency. The Wayne Miner Health Center will provide medical backup for the project. The Kansas City Department of Health will provide statistical monitoring and assessment of the volume and content of care. The school system will assign a half-time nurse to the project and underwrite the costs of space and related maintenance and utilities.
