Hackley Community Care’s (HCC) School-Based Health Programs Are Designed to Meet Students and Families Where They Live

This program was established in the schools in 2005 when HCC was awarded a state grant to operate in three middle schools. The purpose of the School-Based Health Programs was to create a model of care for underserved children and youth through health education. Services have continuously expanded to include medical care, dental care, and mental health services.

Over the Years, School-Based Health Programs Has Expanded Services to Include Two Teen Health Centers - Muskegon High School and Oakridge Middle School

The school-based health program has developed successful partnerships with many Muskegon County School districts. The Muskegon Teen Health Center and Oakridge Teen Health Center serve as an anchor for kids, residents, neighborhoods, and schools. Additionally, virtual mental health services are offered to those districts without a program located there; as well as during the summer when school is out.
