The purpose of this study was to investigate the development and progress of the Community Health Worker Collaborative. The Community Health Worker Collaborative for Wyandotte County is the result of 1.9 million dollar 3 year grant from the United Health Foundation and a partnership between the Community Health Council of Wyandotte County and KC Care Clinic. The partnership has expanded greatly since its inception in late 2015 and a team of community health workers now serve Wyandotte County exclusively. The Community Health Council is partnering with several other local agencies, the Metropolitan Community College, and many healthcare providers to help link Wyandotte’s residents to health and social services.
