DENVER HEALTH FOUNDATION RECIEVES $3.5 MILLION FROM COLORADO HEALTH FOUNDATION

The Denver Health Foundation has announced a four-year, $3.5 million grant from the Colorado Health Foundation in support of its School-Based Health Centers in Denver Public Schools.

The grant will be used to cover operating expenses for existing health centers in fourteen schools and to help develop a new clinic at Place Bridge Academy in southeast Denver. The Denver School-Based Health Centers program works to provide children who might not otherwise receive care with access to free health services, ranging from primary care to health education. During the 2010-11 academic year, more than eleven thousand students, the majority of them from low-income families, enrolled in clinic-provided services.

“Our school clinics often serve as the only source of care for many students,” said Steve Federico, director of Denver School-Based Health Centers. “Funding from the Colorado Health Foundation will help us continue serving the thousands of students who need care and to open a much needed clinic at Place Bridge Academy this fall.”
