Through a generous grant via the United Health Foundation and in cooperation with KC Care Clinic, CHC of Wyandotte County’s Community Health Worker initiative seeks to improve health across Wyandotte County. From time to time, we want to showcase some of the success stories from our health workers:
“I received a referral from one of the flyers that I passed out. This client came to the office with many concerns about this city. She had just arrived from California, and in California they have many places where a person with disabilities can attend and do some arts and crafts. Due to her condition of cerebral palsy, the client is in a wheelchair. It was amazing to me that I handed out information and resources to this client, and they got on it, the family has received the letter that states they have qualified for services.
This client will receive classes at no charge as well as help that will accompany her special needs.”
