The Community Health Worker (CHW) program strives to build bridges between you and the community, medical, dental and mental health care providers. Your community health worker can help to take the role of your advocate, care coordinator, health educator, outreach worker and/or navigator. CHW can help with appointments and medication management, identify and link to additional supports and resources, work collaboratively with other service providers, and act as general support.
The CHW Program is open to Erie County residents of any income level and age, though a focus is given to those ages 18 or older. Candidates for the program must also have one or more chronic health conditions (physical and/or mental health).
