Welcome to the Douglas County/Metro Area Community Health Worker Workgroup
A Community Health Worker (CHW) is a trusted member of the community with a close understanding of the community who contributes to a team-based approach to improve community health and achieve health equity.  This relationship with the community enables the CHW to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between the health/social services and the community to facilitate access to services and improve quality and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-efficacy through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support and advocacy. Community Health Worker is an umbrella term used to define other professional titles.

*Adopted by the Douglas County Community Health Workers Workgroup, April 2017
