Outreach to Migrant Populations
Migrant Populations Outreach is a collective action that brings together various sectors of a community to understand a need, identify common goals, and mobilize resources within a community to achieve those goals.
The Washington Association of Community & Migrant Health Centers (WACMHC) is committed to assist communities in outreaching underinsured and underserved communities by co-sponsoring the Washington Community Health Workers Network (WCHWN). WACMHC’s main goal is to ensure that all Washingtonians have access to primary health care, regardless of geographic locations, nationality or income level.
In addition, WACMHC provides training, mentorship, and direct communication to produce a confident broadly trained workforce of Customer Services Representatives and Community Health Workers/Promotores.
WACMHC partners in sponsoring health fairs throughout the state as one mechanism for outreach to migrant and special populations
WACMHC provides technical assistance in areas such as:
- needs assessment;
- strategic planning;
- foster and support coalitions;
- funding opportunities;
- implementing or expanding Health Promotores Program;
- providing training;
- coordinating urban and rural health fairs and community events.
