Canal Promotores

canal_promoPSP works in partnership with a group of community health workers or Promotores to identify issues and develop solutions to address the interests of the Canal neighborhood of San Rafael.

As community leaders and peer educators, the Canal Promotores work with PSP to educate and organize others in the community and work together for the benefit of children and families. PSP supports the Promotores by providing leadership and advocacy training, assists with outreach and organizing efforts, and connecting with other community partners and decision- makers.

This past year PSP worked closely with 10 Promotores focused on the issue of healthy home environments in Canal neighborhood apartments. The Promotores reached 250 families through door-to-door outreach. Promotores have met with multiple elected officials over the year to raise awareness and advocate for improved living conditions.
