Maternal & Child Health Care Coordination

Our Maternal & Child Health Care Coordination assists moms during and after pregnancy to ensure they have a full-term baby and that mom stays healthy. It helps in many ways, especially through education and addressing the needs of the expectant moms.


Adult Health Care Coordination

Our Adult Health Care Coordination sends a community health worker directly to an individual’s front door. We assist clients in taking away the barriers that would otherwise prevent individuals from getting routine care  and managing their condition.


Community Health Worker Job Training

Our Community Health Worker Job Training includes 10 short weeks of classroom/online training and a community-based practicum that will enable you to have a new profession in the health care industry.

It Was A Great Time To Be A Dad!

More than 90 dads, their kids and families had a great time at the Carl H. Linder YMCA learning more about fatherhood, insurance, healthy relationships, breastfeeding and more. “It’s a Great Time to be a Dad!” was held in November at the Carl H. Lindner YMCA. The event was sponsored by Health Care Access Now (HCAN). “Raising babies into children and children into citizens takes women and men, and we appreciate what HCAN did with this event,” says Sherry Kelley Marshall, President & CEO, Southwest Ohio Region Workforce Investment Board.

D4P from HCAN and YMCA honored as Inspire Award Winner.

Because social determinants surrounding race, ethnicity and income can often have an impact on health outcomes, Health Care Access Now and the YMCA of Greater Cincinnati teamed up to offer type 2 prediabetes prevention (DPP) to low-income and minority patients. The Health Collaborative recognized the D4P program as the winner of the Gen-H Award as part of the 2017 Inspire Healthcare dinner and awards. The purpose of the Gen-H Award is to recognize an individual, team, or organization that has demonstrated progress on the Gen-H goal of making the healthier choice also being the easy choice, when it comes to deciding on where to live, work, learn or play. Gen-H, or “The Health Generation,” means all of us working together to make health and health care a value we share in Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.
