SBCHC's Mission

South Bay Children's Health Center is dedicated to providing quality mental health, dental and counseling services to underserved and at-risk youth and their families in the greater South Bay area.

Since 1947, South Bay Children's Health Center (SBCHC) has offered help and hope to underserved families in need of quality health services for their children.  SBCHC began as a dental clinic at what is now Redondo Union High School and today we reach 25,000 children teens and young adults annually through the provision of quality mental health and dental care.  

Studies show that children with unment mental health needs are more likely to do poorly in school and to be suspended or expelled.  In later years they face lower educational achievement and greater involvement with the criminal justice system.  Untreated oral health issues can also have negative and lasting consequences on a child's life.  Dental disease, if left untreated can lead to unnecessary pain, missed school days and low self-esteem.  At its worst, it can lead to a painful and serious infection - even death.  Early intervention through access to quality, affordable oral and mental health services can vastly improve a child's health.

SBCHC bridges the gap in quality mental health and dental care for young people in and around the South Bay throughout a complex region of Los Angeles County reflecting a wide range of mental health and dental needs, family means and community resources.  Our service region embraces a full 15% of Los Angeles County's population that includes Carson, Compton, Lawndale, Hawthorne, San Pedro, Wilmington, Redondo Beach and Torrance.  

With your help, youth from birth through age 24 can receive vital, life changing and in some cases life-saving care and support in our local clinics and within the community.  These services are delivered by skilled, quality, compassionate dental and mental health providers that specialize in the needs of children and teens at high risk for poor mental and oral health.  Your support of our organization and of our Champions For Children event this year will make an impact that is far reaching and will last for years into the future.
