School-based adolescent health center project in West Side Chicago

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 phase-one grant under the Community Care Funding Partners Program is to establish an adolescent health care clinic at Rezin Orr High School to provide comprehensive health care to the school population. Matching funds were pledged from seven Chicago foundations to complete the eight-year deficit budget submitted with the project proposal. The clinic will provide early detection and treatment of conditions and illnesses; motivate teenagers to adopt healthy lifestyles and discard risk-taking behaviors; and teach adolescents how to use the health care system appropriately and effectively.
