Not all organizations that employ CHWs are directly involved in health care.

Other organizations that employ CHWs include:

  • Non-health care agencies such as:
    • Early childhood education (Head Start)
    • Parenting and child abuse prevention
    • Emergency preparedness programs
    • Services for formerly incarcerated individuals and families of those currently incarcerated
  • Employee benefits programs in large companies or institutions
