The Community Wellness Worker is the heart of the community and provides culturally integrated health services for seniors, adults and families.  Services for seniors are aimed at promoting their healthy social interactions and capacity to live independently at home. The Community Wellness worker often organizes social gatherings that can be informative as well as entertaining. The Community Wellness Worker also coordinates medical transportation and publishes the health department newsletter.

The Child and Youth Worker works with families with children ages 0-6 years and the youth. The Child and Youth Worker supports families by providing informational materials, learning activities and support and assistance to access services in and out side the community. The Child and Youth Worker also works with the youth and organizes healthy activities such as craft and home work nights and outings in and out of the community. Activities promote their physical, social, educational, and overall healthy development.
