Serving children ages 0 to 23, Children's Health Center at THEARC is a full-service medical clinic which provides preventive health care, sick visits, immunizations, chronic illness management, and psychological, legal aid, referral management and social support services. The clinic also provides 24-hour, seven-day a week on-call service to patients. Comprehensive dental services are available through the on-site mobile dental unit.

Addtionally, Children’s Health Center at THEARC provides a Mobile Health Program by operating mobile medical and dental vans that travel throughout the community to provide care which includes immunizations, physical examinations, chronic illness management, medical screenings, oral healthcare, psycho-educational evaluations and referrals for specialty services and legal services. Through a collaboration with The Children's Law Center, Children's Health Center at THEARC created The Health Access Project (HAP) to improve the health of children by adding legal services attorneys to the treatment team who address non-medical barriers that impact kids’ health. To contact HAP, call 202-467-4900 x 513.

Lastly, Children's Health Center at THEARC offers seminars throughout the year which provide awareness on chronic health conditions that disproportionately impact the community and offer tips on proper nutrition, fitness, and other healthy lifestyle habits.
