Toolkit for Advancing Health Equity: Peer Health Ambassadors for People Experiencing Homelessness

Peer Health Ambassador Programs have been developed to improve health education and connections for people experiencing homelessness by hiring, training, and mentoring health ambassadors who have lived expertise and experiences of homelessness. Peer health ambassadors can offer peer support and share personal motivations for getting vaccines and accessing other vital health services, as well as connecting people experiencing homelessness to health care treatment and other resources. This toolkit is designed to help new and expanded Peer Health Ambassador Programs design, develop, and implement their programs in ways that are effective, equitable, and specific to the needs of people experiencing homelessness in the community. This toolkit provides foundational information, best practice guidance, and sample resources that can support local design and implementation.
