Community Health Workers for COVID Response and Resilience

About Us

The Sonoma County Department of Health Services' Community Health Workers for COVID Response and Resilient Communities project team collaborates with new and existing CHWs and Promotoras de Salud (CHW/P) from Sonoma County’s rich ecosystem of community-based organizations (CBOs) and health centers. This workforce development grant seeks to enhance and expand existing C/P's efforts in Sonoma County, and together we are extending the reach and impact of CHW/Ps. CHW/Ps decease the burden of COVID-19 and related comorbidities for our most affected populations. By bringing services into the communities that need them most, delivering these services through trusted messengers, and working in partnership with community members to identify and address underlying systemic barriers to care-seeking and access, we are moving towards greater health equity and helping to build community resilience in Sonoma County.
