Care Connect Program

Have You, or Someone Your Organization Serves, Been Impacted by Covid-19? We Can Help.  

The Greater Health Now Community Hub delivers the Care Connect Washington program in the GHN region (Asotin, Benton, Columbia, Franklin, Garfield, Kittitas, Walla Walla, Whitman, Yakima Counties, and the Yakama Nation.) Through this innovative program, care coordinators connect people to a wide range of community-based services they are eligible for, such as medication delivery, health care, help applying for unemployment, local housing agencies, food banks, childcare providers, and more.  

The Care Connect program is open to all residents within the GHN region (Asotin, Benton, Columbia, Franklin, Garfield, Kittitas, Walla Walla, Whitman, Yakima Counties, and the Yakama Nation) who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and coordination is free of charge. Benefits include service coordination, health education, coaching, goal setting, action planning, and system navigation. Care Coordinators from our Care Coordination Agencies work with clients over three to six months and check in regularly to help clients achieve their goals. Information is provided to clients in their preferred language.

Changes to the Program

As of July 1, 2023, the Care Connect Washington program has changed. Instead of providing immediate support and direct services to people who test positive for COVID-19, the program will now offer care coordination and connection to services for people trying to recover from the impacts of COVID. As of this date, direct services (grocery delivery, care kits, non-perishable food kits, and household financial assistance) are no longer available for Care Connect Washington clients. Visit the Care Connect Washington website for more information.
