Community Health

Workers (CHW)

 

     A frontline public health worker who is a trusted

     member of and/or has a usually close under-

     standing of the community served. This trusting

     relationship enables the CHW to serve as a

    liaison/link/intermediary between health and

    social services and the community, to facilitate

     access to services and improve the quality and

    cultural competence of service delivery.

As CHWs we connect our communities to the resources that they need in order to be healthy in all aspects each and every day. We have uploaded our educational materials and some good contacts for other resources in the community. As always, please contact us!
