Community Resource Navigator
The District has recently developed a new position, our Community Resource Navigator.
The Community Resource Navigator helps community members access healthcare and health-impacting resources. Navigators are non-licensed, non-clinical staff who gather information related to economic barriers, healthcare systems concerns, and basic needs (including, but not limited to, food, transportation, and material goods). The Community Resource Navigator uses this collected information to connect community members directly to vetted regional resources and community agencies. Navigators provide support and guidance to help community members access local federally qualified health centers, Medicare or MediCal providers, and other healthcare systems. They address barriers including access to health care, insurance or lack thereof, poor health literacy, transportation and more. The Community Resource Navigator will help individuals and community members adopt healthy behaviors and will support the District’s outreach of programs that promote, maintain, and improve individual and community health.
