Finding your Community Health Worker
The Department of Health has placed Community Health Workers (CHWs) in specific neighborhoods throughout St. Joseph County to provide and connect community members to different resources. This map displays the CHW located in designated neighborhoods. If you do not live in one of the highlighted Census Tracts Please contact us at (574) 235-9750, Option 8 for more information.
A community health worker is a frontline public health worker who is a trusted member of and/or has an unusually close understanding of the community served. This trusting relationship enables the worker to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and the community to facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery.
A community health worker also builds 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.
