We are Community Health Workers and Promotores!
Community health workers (CHWs) and promotores are at the center of everything we do. Each year, El Sol serves over 50,000 community residents through its programs led by CHWs and promotores. El Sol has been serving the Inland Empire for more than 30 years working to achieve positive, measurable change. El Sol offers foundations and other organizations technical assistance on the development and implementation of CHWs and promotores programs to identify and target community priorities.
El Sol provides home visitation with trained professionals who give parent coaching and comprehensive resource referrals in the home and community. Home visitation has proven through research to be effective in reducing child abuse and neglect, improving child development, reducing preterm births, improving maternal and child health, increasing school readiness, reducing reliance on public financial benefits, and reducing crime. It is an invaluable model for improving family outcomes, preventing expensive crisis-based intervention, and triaging families to appropriate and needed services. Some of the areas of El Sol’s expertise include: knowledge & awareness in family strengthening strategies, team building, community collaboration, sustainability and performance improvement.
