Hope & Care Awards: Recognizing your peers in the community.

Community Health Workers are doing hard work on the frontlines in our communities, serving as trusted advocates for empowerment and social justice. That’s why NACHW wants to recognize exemplary CHWs in our second annual Hope & Care Awards, to be presented at the virtual Unity Conference, August 3-4, 2022.

As the eyes and ears of our national organization, we’re counting on you to share the stories of the CHWs you know going above and beyond. We invite our CHWs, partners and allies to nominate all deserving CHWs who embody our organizational values of self-empowerment, social justice and equality, self-determination, dignity and respect, unity, and integrity.
