Everyone deserves to live the healthiest life possible. Thanks to the support from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), the Coalition will highlight how community schools are making their schools and community healthier places for all.
Here are some stories featured in our Culture of Health Series:
Health and Social Support
Poverty, family circumstances, limited access to health care and other social supports have a substantial impact on a student’s ability to successfully learn and develop. These facts are not "excuses," they are realities that students, families, teachers and principals address daily. Community schools are making connections to important health and social supports by bringing community health agencies, dentists, and mental health practitioners enable young people to develop the competencies needed to lead healthy lives. They offer families support on a consistent basis. All of these services for students, their families, and even the entire community help create the kind of supportive environment that keeps students healthy and safe and living in stable families.
