Email or call the Saginaw Community Care HUB at 989.498.2266 to see if you qualify for Saginaw Pathways to Better Health’s services. If you do, a Community Health Worker will contact you and set up a meeting to speak with you.

The Community Health Worker will meet with you to understand the health care and social services you may need to improve your health, then connect you to the right services to help you better manage your health conditions and other needs you may have – like transportation, child care or food assistance. The Community Health Worker will also follow up with you to make sure your needs are being met.

 

Info to Know
What is a Community Health Worker?
A Community Health Worker (CHW) helps you stay on your path to good health. Community Health Workers meet with you in your home to make sure your health needs and other needs are being taken care of. They help you understand your doctor’s instructions about your medications, and help you choose the right kinds of foods and the right kinds of activities and exercise to keep you healthy. The Community Health Worker also helps connect you with other services you might need – such as transportation, child care, or housing.
