Our Mission

To promote and sustain the integration of community health workers (CHWs) into health and human services organizations
throughout Michigan through coordinated changes in policy and workforce development.


MiCommunity: Spectrum Health

The MiCommunity Campaign features CHWs where they work and the people they work with. This is the first video of many that will highlight a particular agency's CHWs. Focusing on the Spectrum Health MOMs and Core Health programs, this video highlights the role CHWs play in their communities. Watch for more videos coming soon. Until then, enjoy learning more about Michigan's great communities and the CHWs that serve them.
