Family Centers' Community Health Worker (CHW) Initiative has recently launched to help Stamford residents navigate the challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic. In collaboration with the City of Stamford's Health Department and funded by a grant from the Connecticut Health Foundation, this program places an emphasis on connecting Stamford residents – particularly those from low-income communities – with resources and support services needed to safely manage their health and the wellbeing of their families. For more information, email CHW@familycenters.org.
Several of our clinical, home visiting and support programs continue to operate remotely thanks to the use of telemedicine, videoconferencing or telephonic technology. To schedule a video conference, please reach out to your program's contact person.
