community health outreach
Community Wellness Outreach brings Good Help to Those in Need® by providing community-based health care and social services to people in poverty. Clients are treated holistically – mind, body, and spirit. By fostering trusting relationships with community members, the wellness outreach team helps transform hurt into hope, promotes and defends human dignity, and fosters a healing and caring environment.
While many health care and social assistance programs are available to meet the needs of our community, navigating these services can be intimidating, confusing and complicated. This is especially true when someone is experiencing a change in their health, struggling financially, or going through a major life change. As a result of these barriers, many persons and families delay care or rely on emergency departments for primary care and emergency social services to survive.
Wellness Outreach is a dedicated diverse team that consists of clinical, bilingual, ministry team members with various backgrounds to help persons and families integrate and navigate health and social assistance resources and programs. Through education and awareness, guided assistance and a strong network of community partners the team offers and supports such initiatives as community health screenings, flu vaccine clinics and much more.
Community collaboration and engagement are essential to bringing hope, health and new relationships to any community. The Wellness Outreach team strives to maintain a consistent and trusting presence in the community by going out into the neighborhoods where people live, work and play. They seek ways to partner with our community members and partners to reduce health and social care fragmentation and address the social determinants of health that affect health behaviors and influence health outcomes.
Simply put, Wellness Outreach is a ministry of caregivers going out in the community creating a caring and hopeful atmosphere. Our team is committed to bringing people and communities to health and wholeness as part of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church.
