The Healthy Start Field Office (HSFO) was created to provide
training and technical assistance services to the more than 1,000
public schools in California receiving SB-620 Healthy Start
planning or operational grants from the California Department of Education
These grants were established in 1991 by SB-620 and have been
awarded annually to establish school-linked learning supports for
children, families, and communities. Over 850 grants had been
awarded in all 58 counties of California.
The Field Office was located in The Center for Cooperative
Research and Extension Services for Schools (CRESS Center) in the
School of Education at UC Davis.
