PROCEED, Inc., National Center for Training Support and Technical Assistance is a leader and trailblazer in providing cutting-edge capacity building, training, and technical assistance services to not-for-profit community-based health and human services organizations, civic and religious organizations, health departments, government agencies, and academic institutions that are seeking ways to maximize current resources, talent, and technology, to become more effective, efficient, and self-sustaining. 

  

In 2020, PROCEED, Inc. NCTSTA was commissioned by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to lead a national initiative to increase the capacity of Latino communities across the U.S. to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, through education, messaging, and linkage to local support services, in states and/or among segments of the Latino community hardest hit by COVID-19. The resulting initiative is PODER en SALUD.

 

This project is comprised of PROCEED, Inc., 10 community-based Core Partners, and an additional 31 organizations recruited by the Core Partners to serve as local affiliates to help develop and disseminate Spanish-first, accurate, and culturally and situationally appropriate COVID-19 prevention information. Promotores/as or Community Health Workers (CHWs) will provide “boots on the ground” support to deliver COVID-19 prevention, testing, and vaccine messages to Latinos/Latinx, and link them to essential health, human, and social services that will help mitigate the negative impact of the pandemic on the community. Collectively, these Partners will reach Latino/Latinx subgroups in Florida, Arizona, Texas, Georgia, Oregon, California, Kansas, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey, Illinois, Maryland, Washington, Texas, District of Columbia, Indiana, Missouri, New Mexico, Minnesota, U.S Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico. Latino populations of focus for PODER en SALUD include individuals with pre-existing chronic conditions, women and families, undocumented persons, farmworkers, meatpacking/poultry workers, faith communities, and young adults.
