WithinReach’s mission is to serve as the foremost catalyst for improvements in maternal, child and family health by making connections that Washington families need in order to be healthy. AmeriCorps members serve as the program’s Healthy Connections Corps, providing education, information and referrals to individuals who live in at-risk and economically disadvantaged communities. The members educate and inform people about health care, health insurance access and food resources in their communities. This entails approaching and engaging community members about their ability to access healthy food and affordable health care. The members also actively recruit and train community volunteers to assist in this effort.
