When you are pregnant, or struggling with an illness, or overcome by a recent tragedy, or faced with difficult financial or emotional situations, it can be difficult to muster up the energy to do anything - let alone search for all of the possible support services available to you. It should be easy, not confusing, to find what you need in order to be healthy.
Access Tusc now offers Bridges to Wellness, a program that connects families to local resources to help them become stronger and healthier. Through Bridges to Wellness, families can access all the services they need in one place by working with an experienced community care coordinator who will come to their homes, listen to their needs, and work with them to create a plan to make sure their needs are met.
All pregnant women will be brought diapers and baby wipes at all visits by the coordinators and connected to free programs for baby items and needs.

The HUB, by definition is a neutral entity that does not directly provide care coordination services. The HUB gathers the multiple care coordination agencies together into an organized team, trains and supports them to identify those in the community at greatest risk, and assesses and tracks each modifiable risk with standardized Pathways.
National HUB certification through the Pathways Community HUB Institute (HUB Institute) is becoming a greater focus and requirement of funders and policymakers.
A community health worker (CHW) is a frontline public health worker who is a trusted member of and/or has an unusually close understanding of the community served. This trusting relationship enables the CHW to serve as a liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and improve the quality and cultural competence of the service delivery.
"My passion is to help individuals and families get connected to programs and services within my community, and that is exactly what Bridges to Wellness is all about. Small successes deserve huge celebrations and I'm proud to be a Bridges to Wellness cheerleader for the people I serve!"
- Tabby Jackson, CHW
