Health Education

We offer a variety of programs facilitated by state-certified community health workers, also known as “promotores.” Thirteen years ago, El Buen became one of the non-profits to utilize promotores to liaise with community members. Promotores are trusted peers with a personal understanding of the language and life experiences of the community. They help people gain access to needed services and increase health knowledge and self-sufficiency through outreach, community health education, informal counseling and advocacy.
