Brochures (Get Connected With a Community Health Worker)
Translations: Simple & Traditional Chinese, Spanish, French, Karen, Russian
Community Health Workers (CHWs) go directly to residents and community groups to provide on-going connection and support.
Our CHWs are dedicated to identifying needs and connecting people to services.
They are involved in the community to support and enrich the lives of community members.
Focus their attention to Social Determinants of Health -- including education, income, employment, housing, and access to health care -- in order to define and address these factors and help bridge the gaps and disparities they create.
Offer a warm hand-off between community members and agencies, organizations, and programs that can offer assistance to the community member.
Provide a safe, trusting environment to promote agency, encouraging and practicing tools and strategies to create next steps for community members as they continue to navigate community systems.
Listen, create, and provide a safe space for individuals to communicate where they are at in the present.
Promote advocacy for the individuals we are assisting.
Build knowledge based on needs of the individual and work to increase skillsets to help members of the community meet their needs and advance their goals
