Community Health Worker Program

Monterey County Workforce Development Board Community Health Worker (CHW) Training Program

About CHWs:
Community Health Workers (CHWs) are frontline public health workers who have a close understanding of the community they serve. This trusting relationship enables them 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. Community Health Workers also 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. (American Public Health Association, 2008)
