In order to make this grant-funded SBHC a reality, Adams 12 Five Star Schools has partnered with the following organizations:
- Kids First Health Care, a local medical non-profit, serves as the primary fundraiser and as the pass through organization for funding. Kids First also provides staffing for the School-Based Health Center (SBHC). Kids First established the first SBHC in Colorado in Adams County School District 14 in 1978, which was the second SBHC established in the country.
- The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment is providing operating funds for the SBHC for a period of four years. The four years of funding will allow Kids First to create ongoing and sustainable operational funding through Medicaid.
- The City of Thornton (via the Community Development Block Grant) provided $220,000 in capital for construction.
- The Colorado Health Foundation provided $300,000 for construction.
- Caring for Colorado provided $50,000 for construction and architectural design.
The construction and operation of the SBHC is completely grant funded and will not require the district to provide funds from the operations budget or bond funding.
