HealthySteps and Health Advocates

HealthySteps and Health Advocates

Our clinic is a HealthySteps site. This means patients from birth through age five can get extra support to help their family thrive. The HealthySteps team gives extra help around:

  • parenting questions
  • connecting with community partners
  • supporting parents around their own health and basic needs 

Primary Care patients of all ages at the CHC can be connected to the Health Advocates. The Health Advocates team connects families with community programs that assist with needs like:

  • not having enough food
  • housing conditions
  • needing employment
  • other financial help.

The Health Advocates check in with families after a visit via phone to ensure the successful connection to the resources they need.
