Who Are Community Health Workers?

Community Health Workers (CHW) are trained staff members who work to improve the public health of our desert communities. Our team includes trusted locals who understand the makeup of surrounding cities and can help residents navigate various community-based services, state and national benefits programs, and financial and healthcare resources. They are experts on navigating complex systems of care who listen to client stories and concerns to determine the best route for assistance. When you come in for a consultation, a FIND CHW will walk you step-by-step through benefits applications, financial resource programs, and other opportunities to stretch a budget and elevate clients out of precarious financial and health situations.

 

Please call 760-775-3663 to schedule an appointment and determine what documents you will need to access financial assistance and other community and state funded resources. Our highly trained team will walk you through what benefits you qualify for and help you apply!
