Resources and Support for Community-Based Workers
We are community-based workers, trained and trusted community-based professionals who work on the frontline with communities and their members. We are care coordinators, peer specialists, recovery coaches, community health workers, promotores de salud; community-based nonprofit staff, human services providers and much more. We work with community members who are confronted by multiple challenges: physical and behavioral health challenges, addiction, difficult social conditions like unemployment, homelessness, lack of education, lack of health insurance and medical provider, etc. We need to know way to recognize the challenges people are facing, how to provide needed support, and who to refer to when someone needs specific kinds of help.
Here are resources for us. Some are webinars and videos we can use as a refresher on a topic we want to know more about. Some are designed to share with family, friends, neighbors and clients. Think of them as a friendly social media post. Finally, there are resources for supervisors of community-based workers. We don’t own these resources. They were shared with us.
