Providing people with access to health care is an investment in the future. ProSalud promotes health awareness among Hispanic immigrants that lack access to adequate health care, and empowers them to take charge of their own health through education, prevention and access to local resources
ProSalud could always need your help. Volunteers are vital to carry out our mission. ProSalud has a need for volunteers for the following:
Become a Promotora
According to the Texas Department of State Health Services, Promotoras/es are outreach workers in predominantly Hispanic communities who are responsible for raising awareness of health and educational issues. They are extremely effective in their outreach efforts because promotoras/es are usually from the same communities as the population they serve, and are therefore trusted sources of information and respected by their peers. Promotoras/es serve as the bridge between the community and the health care system. They can increase access for services, preventive care, follow-up care and a wide range of other non-health care services.
TheTexas Department of State Health Services offers a training and certification program for persons who want to become promotoras/es or community health workers (CHWs).
For more information about the certification of promotoras/es, please contact the Department of State Health Services Office of Title V and Family Health at 512-458-7111, extension 2208 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
