Support & Services Offered
For the past twenty-five years, the Dallas Community has experienced a successful history of providing school-based health care to students in collaboration with the medical community. The Youth and Family Centers, established in 1993, provide school-based physical and mental health care to Dallas Independent School District students and their families. The centers promote the wholeness of the family and engage families in their children's health and education, thereby reducing barriers to academic success.
The Dallas Independent School District and Parkland Health and Hospital System combine resources to provide quality physical and mental health care. The eleventh Youth and Family Center opened in August, 2012.
