Why Become a Community Health Worker?

$

Agencies in our community are looking to employ CHWs to meet the growing demand of CHW-specialized work

$

As a CHW, you hold the potential to support better health outcomes for your neighbors, your city, and your community by:

  • connecting patients with community-based services

  • assisting patients with addressing social determinants of health needs.

  • reduce potentially avoidable emergency room visits

  • improve patient engagement in preventative, chronic disease management, and self-management services in Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC)
