This planning grant will allow PureView Health Center (PVHC) to plan for the opening of a school-based health center in East Helena. The school-based health center will be created through partnerships with Intermountain Children’s Services (a children’s mental health center), PVHC (a federally qualified health center), and the East Helena School District (a school district that serves 50 percent of children on free or reduced lunch). This grant will allow all three organizations to effectively plan for the construction and service delivery of the clinic including but not limited to: architectural professional services, a site visit to a successful integrated school-based health center, and the development of a business and operational plan.
