CHA in the Community

Community Health is a Major Focus of Our Work

CHA provides a broad array of community health programs targeting populations at risk for health care disparities. These groups include those who are low-income, immigrants, or of cultural or linguistic minorities, and those marginalized because of homelessness or behavioral health disorders. Community Health Improvement staff work to educate these groups about available services, reduce barriers to accessing care, create links to appropriate health care services and provide culturally appropriate, accessible, and engaging education about preventive care and healthy lifestyles.

  • Volunteer Health Advisor (VHA) Program

    VHA's at Mobile Farmer's Market

    The VHA Program is a volunteer-driven, multicultural education and outreach program dedicated to improving the health of under served communities. VHAs are trained by public health and medical professionals on health topics and screenings that are relevant to the communities Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) serves.
