Community Health Alignment

Housed at the University of South Carolina Arnold School of Public Health, the Center for Community Health Alignment (CCHA) has a strong understanding of health equity and the impact social determinants play on health. Our mission at the Arnold School is to use evidence-based models and meaningful engagement strategies to co-create solutions with community leaders that address health inequities.

CCHA brings together three major initiatives, PASOs, the Community Health Worker Institute (CHWI), and Equity through Meaningful Community Engagement (EMCE). Together, the entities within CCHA work collaboratively to address health inequities in communities throughout South Carolina. PASOs helps build a stronger South Carolina by supporting Latino communities with education, advocacy, and leadership development. The recently created South Carolina Community Health Worker Institute was created to ensure well-trained and supported Community Health Workers are in our communities supporting greater access to health for all South Carolinians. CCHA approaches diversity and equity with community members at the center, creating solutions by the community and for the community through Equity through Meaningful Community Engagement (EMCE).

About Us

For too long, the perspectives of individuals who are most impacted have been missing from conversations about their own health and well-being. The most lasting health solutions are produced by the alignment of services and resources. The Center for Community Health Alignment provides support to organizations and communities in pursuit of improved health and increased equity. As you explore our website, we invite you the opportunity to get to know us, who we are and what we do.

Our very own Lillie Fox recently had the pleasure of supporting a diaper tour at the Chesterfield Family YMCA . In collaboration with Molina Healthcare, the event supported 50 local moms. Each family received a diaper bag, diapers, and wipes. It’s important that ALL families have equitable access to diapers and diapering supplies for the health of our children. We’re proud to partner with organizations across the state that understand the importance of such equitable access. #chws #communityhealthworkers #southcarolina #diapers #healthequity
