We're focusing on the needs of adolescents and their families. As a Federally Qualified nonprofit community health center, FHCCGLA is very proud to partner with the Montebello Unified School District in this initiative designed to improve access to health services to all members of the Bell Gardens High School community.

With 3570 students, Bell Gardens High School Health Center will represent a significant opportunity to extend health care resources to adolescent and young adults who are often reluctant to access services in traditional settings.
