Grant Awarded: $135,000

CHAMP (Care toward Health Access with Management that is Personal) helps low- to moderate-income African American community members in south St. Petersburg to better navigate and access the health care and human services system. The approach utilizes Community Navigators, trained residents of the community who partner with individuals from teens to older adults to assess their current needs and make health care, insurance and other health-related referrals. The goals of the project are to reduce ER visits, increase scheduled medical appointments and promote healthier lifestyles.
