About Us

History and current status of Glendale Healthy Kids- January 1, 2018
Glendale Healthy Kids signature program is the dental health education program that is presented to 1st graders in the Glendale Unified School District.
Glendale Healthy Kids began in 1993 when a Needs Assessment by local hospitals confirmed what the Glendale Unified School District was seeing and that was that many children were receiving their primary care from School Nurses and through the emergency rooms of local Glendale hospitals. Together with Verdugo Hills Hospital, Glendale Memorial and Adventist Medical Center, the Glendale Unified School District and the City of Glendale formed an organization and incorporated in 1993 to ensure the lasting assistance through Glendale Healthy Kids. This was facilitated by the ongoing organization of the Glendale Healthier Community Coalition.
Over the years, Glendale Healthy Kids has provided referrals for thousands of children to volunteer physicians, dentists, other health care professionals. They collaborate with community members and organizations to provide children of low income and underinsured families with access to healthcare and to provide preventative health education to the community.
Indeed the mission of Glendale Healthy Kids is to ensure that children have access to healthcare and health education. The vision is ‘a community in which every child has optimal health’. The core values are integrity, caring, quality and teamwork. We believe in the wellbeing and dignity of each person and we are committed to working together as a community to reach our goals.
As laws pertaining to health insurance have changed regarding both medical and dental care, GHK has made accommodations. Sometimes a family may have coverage but not know how to fully access that coverage. Access to a qualified assistant is so important. Not surprisingly many children miss school due to medical and dental problems.
To access Glendale Healthy Kids, one only has to contact their school Health Office and request the referral forms or contact the GHK office directly at (818) 568-0348, or email GHK at info@glendalehealthykids.org. While anyone can refer a child to GHK the School Nurse or Health Office personnel can make referrals more quickly. GHK is a totally volunteer organization. They do not accept governmental financial assistance at this time so they are totally dependent on individual and organizational donations. They are not an emergency room but they can help with same day appointments. Parents still have the final decision as to what they choose to do.
