Supplemental support for school-based adolescent health center

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 provides interim support for operations of a pioneer model of school-based adolescent health services in Houston. During this period, the project will seek to achieve a stable funding base through a formal affiliation with the Hermann Hospital, the prime teaching institution of the University of Texas Medical Center at Houston. Initiated under RWJF's Community Care Funding Partners Program, the project qualified for $500,000 in RWJF support over an 8-year period beginning in 1981 and raised $1.7 million in matching funds--close to 3 times the amount required. The protracted recession in the Houston economy has meant that corporate giving -- the main source of support for the project -- has been severely reduced. While corporate participation in the project will continue, it will not be sufficient for it to stay in operation until the affiliation agreement and related funding with Hermann are concluded.
