Wellness Center Services

The John F. Kennedy High School Wellnes center, located in room 1128s, provides opportunities for students and their families to receive support in key areas, such as physical and emotional health, pro-social activities, and concrete services. These services are provided in an inclusive, culturally competent, trauma informed manner to assist John F. Kennedy High School students and their families in improving upon their individual and family functioning, which often results in improved outcomes for the youth and their families. The John F. Kennedy High School Wellness Center provides a wide array of services that include somatic health care, counseling (individual, family and group), case management, after school activities, workforce development, conflict resolution and mediation, and parent education, outreach and engagement. The National Center for Children and Families (NCCF) is excited to work with the administration, staff, students and their families as the provider of these services in collaboration with our partners.

The Wellness Center is open from 8:30 a.m. until 6:00 p.m. daily and from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. one Saturday per month. All services are free to John F. Kennedy High School students and their families. To enroll in the Wellness Center, a referral must be completed and forwarded to the Wellness Center. Referrals and intake packets are available in the counseling office and the Wellness Center. Once the referral is received, the student and/or parent will need to complete the Wellness Center intake packet. After which, the student and their family will begin to receive services. Services are available in Spanish and English directly, as well as other languages via an interpreter.
