The Community Navigator Program partners with community health workers to reach community members where they are. By going to food distributions and other places people get services, Navigators are able to link people with all the resources and support they need in one stop.
Kim Pickens, our Lead Community Navigator, says, "My favorite success story so far is a young woman in her 30s who is disabled and was having trouble communicating with providers due to that disability. She had become isolated and lost her food stamps because of an incorrect address. We were able to reinstate her SNAP benefits as well as get her connected with a Medicare program that helps pay for co-pays and medicines so she has access to more of her disability income."
