Meet Your Community Navigators
Community Navigators act as bridges that connect youth, families and community members to the resources they need to be successful. Navigators engage in frequent trainings and workshops around issues of healthy living, trauma-informed care, mental health first aid and community organizing principles. Connect with a Community Navigator here!

"I am passionate about my work. Because I love what I do. I have a steady source of motivation that drives me to do my best. Not many people know this about me, but when I was younger I lived to play hide and seek. Once playing with my cousins, I hid so well that they did not find me and I fell asleep!"
