Social Service Providers
More than any other organizations across America, social service agencies like yours know the devastation a pandemic can wreak on people already struggling to have their basic needs met. COVID-19 has changed the way you provide help to others and it may feel overwhelming at times, especially with so much uncertainty.
By partnering with the PRN to make Community Health Watch available to your community, you can provide an even higher level of support and connectivity to those most in need of help. And your team will have the opportunity to combine efforts with other organizations to create greater efficiency in service referrals and access to resources to get help to the people who need it most, when they need it.
Our Community Health Watch medical professionals will monitor any symptoms of COVID-19 the people you refer to us might be having, and provide them with feedback in real time so that they can get the right medical care at the right time in a way that feels safe and comfortable to them.
Further, as communities are able to increase COVID-19 testing and begin implementing contact tracing, “close contacts” will need support, too. We can provide that safely and with the sensitivity needed.
What will it mean to partner with the PRN?
The PRN is committed to meeting the needs of vulnerable community members – particularly those that have been hardest hit by COVID-19. In the coming months, a large number of communities may experience their first outbreak of the virus, and people living there will need support.
As the volume of requests for help increases to your agency, we can ease at least part of the burden by providing symptom monitoring and feedback to people in your community and we can do so in a way that is meaningful and maintains the trust people have placed in you.
We will work with you to make Community Health Watch available to your community.
As our partner, you will:
- Distribute material related to your Community Health Watch program to people in your community as well as support their participation in the Community Health Watch program.
- Contribute thought leadership to the PRN. You know the people accessing your services and resources better than anyone – our partners can learn from your challenges and your successes!
- Have an opportunity to work with the PRN team to generate evidence for how to best help individuals in your community stay safe and connected.
- Support the delivery of PRN services to people living in your area.
