WELLNESS NAVIGATION

Our Wellness Navigation program is modeled after the Community Health Workers model in understanding that the health of our Pasifika communities is linked not just to accessing healthcare, but also in addressing the social determinants of health which includes access to housing, transportation, food, social belonging, employment & education. Our Wellness Navigators are equipped to support Pasifika families in navigating services offered in our NHPI networks and offered outside of our networks. They provide supports to combat housing insecurity, access to healthcare and other critical supports. Wellness Navigation also focuses on the cultural stewardship of our elders through providing elder social support services.
