Reflections & Testimonials from CHWs
"I have learned so much thru this COVID-19 training and without this training how would I be able to help the clients in my community. I definitely would love to take this training again, just to be sure that I didn’t miss anything."
"We all are bonded in the work that we do, so having this class together was able to make me feel like I was part of a large CHW family."
"I loved coming to class because I knew I would learn something interesting or even new at every class."
Greater Hazelwood Community Collaborative
"I have been a CHW for years, but not recognized by Community or the Network I represent. After CHW training I learned there is so much more we can do for our community. I access social determinants of health that can save lives. So thinking of that I decided to go forward, and get my Certification through the state of PA."
Valley Health Partners at LVHN
"Because we are all CHW we can share experiences that are beneficial to our jobs. Bringing in diversity it is very valuable. It is very helpful to have a network of resources.
"I truly enjoyed the training, as it allows for one to also get to know more CHW's and navigate and strategize in partnership."

"Being a Community Health Worker has opened many doors for me. I love helping my Community, there's just no other way of saying it. The population I work with changes now and then but if it wasn't for this training and the tools I've been given, I would not be as successful as I am today. I'm grateful to say I've been in this role for 4 years now with so much knowledge and integrity. It may seem scary at first, but the key I would say is to know who or where to turn to when you need help, whether it be with resources, or how to deal with others. Best of luck to those who are coming into this role. You will not be disappointed! ."
