Navigating the healthcare system can be a big challenge for someone in poverty. That's where our Health Ambassadors come in. They meet people where they're at throughout the community and connect them to different resources that will help them lead healthier lives. This makes a huge impact on their journey to sustainability!
The Health Ambassadors, as part of our Empower Health program, have been hard at work and making a big difference in our community. Check out the great story below about how City Mission is equipping men and women to live healthier lives!

"We use everything to our advantage, whether it's our ethnicity or our upbringing... We know the struggle and challenges that being in poverty brings. It's helpful that we sound and look like our audience. We didn't learn all this stuff from a book."
