The Yamhill Community Care
Community Health Hub
Sometimes getting the care you need is not easy. Keeping appointments, finding programs to help with food or housing, and meeting your goals can be hard to do.
The great news is you are not alone!
Our Community Health Hub team will partner with you to live the healthy life you want to live. They can help in whatever way you decide.
Community Health Workers(CHWs) are part of a group of frontline public health workers who provide support to individuals to help with their health goals.
This group of workers are under the umbrella term of “Traditional Health Workers”.
Community Health Workers assist in many ways:
- Help you get a provider for your dental, physical, or mental health
- Help schedule health visits and go with you if you choose
- Share about resources in your area, like food or rent assistance
- Work with your doctor’s office or social services
- Talk to you about your YCCO health benefits
Community Health Workers also provide a program called Wellness-to-Learn. The focus of this program is to connect school children and their families to social, medical, dental, and behavioral support.
Still not sure? Here are some of the things in the Wellness-to-Learn program:
- Brings clothing, bedding, and furniture to someone who needs it
- Help families in getting a second pair of glasses for a child
- Help families in getting scholarships to attend childhood camps
- Help with filling out paperwork or switching to a new doctor
- Help with securing safe housing or partial rent payments through community programs
- Help parents schedule IEP evaluations
