About Us

Oregon School-Based Health Alliance (OSBHA) is a statewide 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization serving as the collective voice to build a stable, effective, and accessible school-based health care system through the development of school-based health centers (SBHCs).
 
Our vision is that all children and youth are healthy, learning, and thriving.
 
Our mission is to strengthen school based health services and systems that promote the health and academic success of young people.
