Redwood Community Health Coalition (RCHC) is a network comprised of 16 members, 15 community health centers and wellness education site, and a total of 74 sites in Marin, Napa, Sonoma and Yolo Counties. Formed in 1994, our mission is to improve access to and the quality of care provided for under-served and uninsured people in our four counties. RCHC’s major focus is to strengthen the capacity of member health centers to act as a regional network of comprehensive primary care that provides access to consistently high quality clinical care, effective care coordination and reduce health disparities.
Under the Neighborhood-Base Services initiative RCHC will facilitate the development of coordinated Neighborhood Networks in Sonoma County, consisting of Community Health Centers, Family Resource Centers, schools, and other community-based organizations. RCHC will host a neighborhood hub at the County WIC office to provide application assistance and enrollment services for Covered California, Medi-Cal and CalFresh, as well as referrals to community resources. Because they are the foundation of the work to strengthen partnerships between organizations, RCHC will provide funding, training, peer networking, and advocacy support to CHWs, case managers, Certified Enrollment Counselors, and other people working to connect families to resources that improve the health and well-being of children ages 0-5.
