Community Foundation of Sarasota County Awards the Multicultural Health Institute $30,000 to Safekeeper Care Navigation Program

The Giving Coast

The Community Foundation of Sarasota County granted $30,000 through its Equity and Access Grant program to support the MHI Safekeeper Care Coordination Program. With this funding provided by the James Franklin Warnell & Dorothy J. Warnell Fund, this Program is the synchronization of the delivery of a person’s social economic needs and health goals. The focus will be on improving quality care, addressing social determinants of health, increasing client’s satisfaction by leveraging and connecting the relationships of community agencies, providers, health systems, and health plans to work together to decrease fragmented care. We can accomplish this through the following methods:

This pilot program leverages the MHI Safekeepers by training this field intervention team to become Community and Health Navigators. The training will include Health & Wellness modules, resilience/trauma training along with motivational interviewing that will allow them to become a Certified health worker. Healthcare organizations and insurance entities are now emphasizing the need to reach individuals outside of office through care coordination services. MHI’s Care Navigation and Coordination Model will fill the gap by supplementing with 1-on-1 interactions from trained Community and Health Navigators. These additional check-ins help individuals by better managing their conditions, monitoring medication usage & encouraging healthy lifestyle behaviors.
