PRESS RELEASE


East Valley Community Health Center

is an honored recipient of California’s ACEs Aware Initiative Award


WEST COVINA, CA (Monday, September 19, 2022) - We are pleased to be selected as a recipient of the Preventing and Responding to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE)-Associated Health Conditions and Toxic Stress in Clinics through a Community Engagement (PRACTICE) award as part of a third round of funding through the ACEs Aware initiative.

The goal of PRACTICE is to increase the workforce and services needed for primary care clinics in California to expand and sustain screening and response to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress in local communities.

The funding is being awarded to teams that will be led by clinics and will include community-based organizations and Medi-Cal managed care plans. Teams will identify gaps in their communities in care and services and, through a statewide learning collaborative, leverage existing and new sources of state funding to build sustainable capacity to fill these gaps.

East Valley Community Health Center is the lead grantee for the Prevention and Remediation of ACEs and Toxic Stress (PRATS) Consortium, which includes: Community Translational Research Institute Claremont Graduate University Tri-City Mental Health Center Cal Poly Pomona LA Care Health Plan Inland Empire Health Plan
