QHC Receives an ACEs Aware Initiative PRACTICE $500,000 Grant Award

QueensCare Health Centers (QHC) is pleased to be selected as a recipient of the Preventing and Responding to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE)-Associated Health Conditions and Toxic Stress in Clinics through Community Engagement (PRACTICE) $500,000 award as part of a third round of funding through the ACEs Aware initiative.

The goal of PRACTICE is to increase the workforce and services needed for primary care clinics in California to expand and sustain screening and response to Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) and toxic stress in local communities.

The funding is being awarded to teams that will be led by clinics and will include community-based organizations and Medi-Cal managed care plans. Teams will identify gaps in their communities in care and services and, through a statewide learning collaborative, leverage existing and new sources of state funding to build sustainable capacity to fill these gaps.

QHC’s team will include Hillsides and Blue Shield of California Promise Health Plan.
