MHP Salud is an innovative, culturally-specific 501(c)(3) nonprofit that is an established leader in community health.
Our organization possesses expertise in planning, implementing, and evaluating successful Community Health Worker programs to address relevant health challenges in underserved communities.
Community Health Workers are trained community members that have established trust within the community and possess shared experiences with participants. They provide culturally-tailored outreach and education that reaches participants “where they are.” This enables participants to best address their unique barriers to achieving optimal health. Our programs are key in achieving MHP Salud’s mission: To empower underserved Latino communities.
MHP Salud’s efforts are far-reaching and have had a widespread impact. Our health outcomes programs have provided needed services to underserved Latino communities in Florida, Michigan, Ohio and Texas. The results of our programs are powerful, demonstrating statistically-significant self-reported and clinical outcomes. For instance, MHP Salud’s Community Health Workers helped a father get his A1C under control. Read the entire story here.
