Uniting for Health, Equity, and Social Justice.

At the forefront of community health, we champion equity and social justice, striving to build healthier communities nationwide – one person at a time.


Who We Are

The National Association of Community Health Workers (NACHW) was founded in April 2019 after several years of planning and organizing by Community Health Workers (CHWs) and allies across the United States. NACHW is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit membership-driven organization with a mission to unify CHWs across geography, ethnicity, sector and experience to support communities to achieve health, equity and social justice.
