Community Health Workers

Do you have a disability or chronic condition?

Would you like the support of a peer?

These are tough times, and we all need help getting through them. The Brooklyn Center for Independence of the Disabled’s Community Health Worker Program can offer the support you need, citywide.

Our Community Health Workers (CHWs) are people with disabilities, so they’ll talk with you as peers. In weekly calls, they’ll offer:

• Emotional support

• Guidance getting the health care and other services you need

• Links to resources in the community

• Advice on how to advocate for yourself

Just contact BCID at 929-219-0960

(Business hours only)

or write CHW@bcid.org.

Funded by a generous grant by the Mother Cabrini Health Foundation.
