comunity health outreach
The Community Health Outreach program is committed to bringing people and communities to health and wholeness as part of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church. We bring Good Help to those in need by providing community-based health care and related services to people in poverty. Staffed with both nursing and social work professionals, clients are treated holistically — mind, body, and spirit. By fostering trusting relationships with community members, the health outreach team helps transform hurt into hope, promotes and defends human dignity, and fosters a healing and caring environment.
Community Health Outreach provides community members with opportunities to improve their health and quality of life. By providing assistance with access to healthcare, health prevention education, community advocacy, and a therapeutic presence, clients are able to establish a patient-primary care provider relationship, improve overall health, reduce unnecessary emergency department admissions, and decrease readmission to the healthcare system.
