Community Health Workers

If you can't meet with our CHWs while they are on outreach, stop by 2401 SW Archer Rd, Gainesville, FL 32608. We have a clothing and toiletry closet, and can provide you with face masks, health-related resources, referrals, and more!



NARCAN® Nasal Spray may counteract the life-threatening effects of an opioid overdose. Since most accidental overdoses occur in a home setting, it was developed for family, friends, and caregivers - with no medical training required.

HealthStreet has partnered with Florida Department of Children and Families to distribute NARCAN® in our community. Call 352-294-4880 today to get your own NARCAN® Nasal Spray.
