Our care and commitment to our employees is deeply entrenched in our history, which began over thirty years ago as a small nonprofit in the Midwest. Although over time, our scope of work has grown, that committment to our team and the community they serve has never changed. We are still a bi-cultural and bilingual organization, and often have positions available for in-the-field, virtual home office, and traditional office based work. We are proud to continue to serve Latino and Hispanic communities through the Community Health Worker model, and look forward to welcoming you to the team.

Who are Community Health Workers?
A Community Health Worker is a trusted member of the community who empowers their peers through education and connections to health and social resources. This trusting relationship enables the Community Health Worker to serve as a liaison between health or social services and the community to facilitate access to services and improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery. A Community Health Worker also builds individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support, and advocacy.
Since its inception in 1983, MHP Salud has developed a strong history of working with farmworkers and their rural communities to improve health and increase access to care. Developing and implementing innovative health promotion programs with a firm commitment to collaboration and resource-sharing have remained key organizational strategies. The National Migrant Worker Council, Inc., an association of Catholic sisters, religious leaders and volunteers, originally shaped this vision out of their commitment to improving the health of farmworkers. In 2013, MHP Salud adopted its new name from its old name, “Migrant Health Promotion.” The name and logo refocus on the organization’s over 30-year history serving migrants, with a widening of scope to include MHP Salud’s commitment to serving migrant farmworker, border and other underserved and isolated Latino communities throughout the United States.
