The overall goal of the DC Health SBHC program is to improve the overall health of students, as well as minimize the effects of poverty and other adverse experiences, enabling students to thrive in the classroom and beyond. Services include promoting an adolescent-friendly health environment, assuring coordination of care, and serving as a medical home.

Wells Middle School (co-located schools), Dunbar Senior High School, Roosevelt Senior High School and H.D. Woodson High School. Applicants may apply to operate one or more SBHCs based on capacity to provide services. DC Health will determine location assignments for successful applicants. SBHC services shall also be available to feeder schools and the community, as determined by DC Health and DCPS.
SBHCs offer a range of health services including primary and preventative care, in-person mental health and supplemental telemental health and wellness, sexual health, health education and health promotion. SBHCs are a powerful investment in the health and academic potential of children and adolescents, by providing students with an entry point into health care in a location that is safe, convenient, and accessible. These centers are staffed by licensed professionals with the experience and expertise to deliver quality care while addressing the broad range of concerns that affect students’ healthy development.
