ALAMEDA COUNTY HEALTH CARE
Supported families are supportive families.
Families are fundamental to children's healthy development and academic success. Building on nationally recognized best practices, we work with our partners to create family support, education, and leadership opportunities in school-based and school-linked settings, and to ensure there is a strong connection between home and school.
School Health Centers and School-Based Behavioral Health
Our school health centers and school-based behavioral health systems support families through programs like parent cafes, wellness workshops, and information and referral services. We provide trainings to our staff and partners to effectively infuse family engagement practices into their program structures.
