Bridge funding in support of the Community Health Worker Initiative of the REACH Project. The program includes the recruitment and training of ten community health workers to be placed in two public elementary schools, one middle school, and two neighborhood health clinics. The workers are positioned to identify up to 300 children with untreated medical issues such as asthma, Attention Deficit Disorder, and lead poisoning; to make over 2,000 home visits to educate families in proper management of the child's health condition; to make referrals; and to demonstrate improved health indicators, increased compliance with treatment plans, and decreased use of the emergency room.
