Community Health Worker Program

Community Health Workers (CHWs) play crucial roles in promoting and supporting the health of individuals, families, and communities. They are frontline public health workers who are trusted members of and/or have close understanding of the communities they serve. This relationship allows them to be a link between health/social services and the community, to facilitate access to services, and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery. CHWs build trusting relationships with their clients and help to conduct assessments, make referrals, offer health education, navigate complicated systems, and advocate for client’s needs.

The Community Health Worker Training Program is now open. Apply now through Thursday, January 11th.
