The Community Health Worker Network of Buffalo (CHWNB), now operating under the umbrella of CoNECT, formed in 2010 through the efforts of a group of advocates in health care, public health, academia, and community-based organizations looking to foster “bottom up” strategies to improve community health in Buffalo and beyond. The CHWNB developed as frontline workers of and from the communities they serve (Community Health Workers) and stakeholders came together in the areas of health care, public health, housing, education, environment, food access, and social services; with the intent to empower community members to define their own challenges and opportunities and take action to self-determine their future.
CoNECT now includes the CHWNB, School Health and Wellness Collaborative, Peace, Love and Power Collective and several other community-based, intersectoral initiatives. CoNECT’s mission is to build relationships, trust and power for healthier individuals, organizations and communities.
