Community Health Worker Initiative

The Community Health Worker Initiative offers Prince George’s County residents free access to a Community Health Worker (CHW) who will help connect them with the health and social services they need. Through Community Health Workers, we aim to identify the needs of our residents and increase their access to quality health care.

  • Refer residents to medical transportation and other types of assistance.
