WHAT ARE

COMMUNITY HEALTH WORKERS?

CHC of Wyandotte County believes in the ability of Community Health Workers (CHWs) as agents of lasting change. According to APHA, CHWs “build individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support, and advocacy.”

In addition to their health knowledge, Community Health Workers have intimate knowledge of the community they work in and can provide unique insight to the strengths, weaknesses, and needs of those they serve.
