Community Health Worker (CHW)

Salary: Negotiable

Job Description: Community Health Workers are an important resource for communities, connecting individuals and families to services and information they need.

Community Health Workers (CHWs) are frontline public health workers who are trusted members of the community served. This trusting relationship enables CHWs to serve as a liaison between health & social services to facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery.
CHWs also build individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through various activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support, and advocacy.
