Connect for Health, formerly known as Health Leads, understands that a lack of basic resources is often the root cause of poor health. Therefore, we strive to integrate basic resources into healthcare delivery. Advocates work at Hasbro Children’s Hospital to connect low-income families to resources vital to their health, such as utilities assistance, public benefits, furniture, and food. We are a social justice group fighting for health equity! Each week, advocates spend 2.5 hours in the clinic, follow up regularly with clients, and attend advocate development meetings.
