The mission of CHAS Health is to improve the health of communities we serve by expanding access to quality health and wellness services.
We are committed to supporting our patients and all aspects of their health. That means helping patients get the support they need every step of the way.
Our community has many resources and we want to make sure our patients have access to them. The FindHelp database is an online directory that lists free or reduced cost services like food, housing, legal support, and more. Visit chasfindresources.findhelp.com to find programs near you.
CHAS Health has Street Medicine providers and Homeless Outreach workers that work with patients experiencing homelessness. Street Medicine providers meet patients where they are and can provide immediate medical care. Sometimes that’s at homeless shelters and other times it’s on the sidewalk.
Homeless Outreach workers connect patients to resources in the community including housing, meal sites, and follow-up medical appointments. Outreach teams can meet patients wherever they feel comfortable.
CHAS Health Patient Resource Coordinators (PRC) are located at CHAS Health clinics to help patients find community resources. They also help patients understand their health insurance, sign up for health insurance coverage, and complete sliding fee discount applications.
Walk into any CHAS Health clinic and speak with a PRC or call 509.444.8200
CHAS Community Health Workers (CHW) are trained to help patients navigate clinics and the health system. They advocate for patients and come from the communities they serve. CHAS Health has Marshallese, Spanish-speaking, Russian-speaking, senior, and rural community health workers.
To reach a community health worker, call 509.444.8200 and ask to speak with a CHW.
