Celebrating over 40 years of service to individuals, families, and communities in the San Francisco Bay Area.

The De Anza High School Health Center was established in June 2007 as a collaboration effort between the West Contra Costa Unified School District and Bay Area Community Resources. The Health Center collaborates with a number of local service providers to deliver free, accessible, on-site health services available for all De Anza High School students. Basic services include health education information and workshops, mental health individual and group counseling, violence prevention programs, drug and alcohol prevention/youth development programs, and reproductive health medical services including: STD screening and treatment, pregnancy testing, reproductive health counseling, and contraceptives. This year, DeAnza will be serving 600 students directly and 1100 will be reached.

  • Since I've been blessed with the chance to have a good education and many opportunities, I feel obligated to give back and to use the education and the experiences I've had to make an impact.

  • Seeing the kids' growth through the years, despite the odds being against a lot of them, for whatever reason, is what inspires me to stay here.

  • I am motivated by all the great people that work for BACR and the wonderful things they do. My great reward is knowing that I can help them in their work to support communities all over the Bay.

  • Helping other people is what inspires me to work here. Being able to change people's lives, by helping them understand their problems with alcohol, is a huge contribution to my inspiration here.
