REACH was implemented in collaboration with the CDPH, the Chicago VNA, and Westside Future, a community-based social service agency.

Staffing Requirements

REACH was a multiagency model that used staff from several different organizations. Teams of registered nurses and community workers trained as CHAs conducted the first home visit. Subsequent visits were conducted by public health nurses or aides from the CDPH or by nurses from VNA.

Staff Education and Experience

VNA nursing staff specialized in home management of acute problems. CHAs were typically employed by a hospital and were usually recruited from the same or similar community areas as program participants.
