Community Health Assets Mapping Partnership (CHAMP) Access to Care East Winston Area-Winston Salem, NC
Background of Mapping Process African Religious Health Assets Program – Developed a PIRHANA tool for identifying and understanding the positive things in communities – Community Health Assets Mapping Partnership or CHAMP was adapted from PIRHANA, developed in Memphis and South Africa to aid in aligning and leveraging assets to improve healthcare outcomes – CHAMP Access to Care is being used in North Carolina as part of our FaithHealthNC movement

What you put on the maps: 35 Entities
What we learned from your maps Participants highly value churches, as well as service ministries (providing food and shelter) Local health clinics (Aegis, Community Care Clinic) were deeply valued Mental health services are strongly needed Youth voices are needed to understand their perspective and more intergenerational programs
What we learned from your maps Deep pride still exists for East Winston, with a sense that “community” has been lost Elders are now going into long-term care or dying and no longer “watch over” the neighborhood Local grocery stores provide “one stop” shopping for check cashing, stamps, pharmacy, etc. Race and segregation is still present
Factors that work against health/well-being in your community with regard to Access Lack of Transportation Lack of Education and Information Lack of Insurance Poverty Lack of Compassionate Care Denial/Shame
Factors that contribute to health/well-being in your community with regard to Access Physical Proximity to Doctor’s Office Compassionate Care Information and Knowledge from Church and other Organizations Finances Insurance Coverage

In the seeker workshop, we ranked different types of organizations and factors Group 3 Food Sources Medicine/ Prescription Services Social Services/Youth Services Day Care Services Public Health Mental/Physical Public Transportation Churches Proximity to Care Transportation 54444N/A5 Compassionate Care Information/ Knowledge/ Education Adequate Funds Jobs Good Health Care Coverage N/A3431 5
What does your organization believe to be the most important factors contributing to health with regard to those who need better access to care? Provider Workshop: Education and Training Trust Compassion and Honesty Primary Care Providers Patient-centered care and self-efficacy
How Religion Contributes to Health/Well-being Provide more support and education on community resources, especially improving food and exercise Offer hope, trust and nurturance Can further stigmatize or de-stigmatize issues such as sexual health and orientation, HIV/AIDS
Providers’ Health Services Matrix 5 Prevention and Education Services 5 Advocacy Services 4 Nutritional Support Missing was wound care, long-term care, device assistance, physical activity support, maternal and child health, practical assistance, translation services, transitional housing, corporations and homeless assistance

Next Steps: Seekers Creating a map of services and churches in East Winston-Salem Creating a list of addresses, phone numbers, and hours of operation for health provider services in the area Creating protocols regarding what is needed of the seeker in order to access services Offering a list of church ministries providing services such as food pantries and health clinics
Next Steps: Providers Creating one general location seekers within the community can sign up for everything Since transportation is an issue, it would be nice to have everything located in a “one-stop-shop” Creating a general directory of resources regarding what is available and the requirements for accessing them Holding a community meeting specifically for networking and dissemination of information about programs (best if built on existing meetings) Incorporating what they learned from the workshop into care practices
Questions Do you see any differences between the things that the health seekers mentioned and the things that the health providers mentioned? Do you see any other steps that we can take together? – Have you thought of any other steps in the time since the workshop that would be important to add to this list? – How can the next steps of the providers and seekers fit together?
Questions Time has passed and you went through this experience. What did you get out of the workshops? What did you learn during the process?
Questions How can we use our community assets to move forward on these next steps? Which of these steps are the most important to you and your community?
Questions How could FaithHealthNC, your church and other organizations, in partnership with the people who live, work and play in your neighborhood, help to get people in your neighborhood the things they need to live healthy (abundant) lives? How would YOU be willing to help us move forward on the ideas we talked about today?
