What We Do

Our goal is to help them live better lives by fulfilling their needs. Community Health Action Network in Victorville, California provides assistance to families and individuals in underprivileged communities through:

  • Utility Assistance
  • Food/Motel Vouchers
  • GED Preparation
  • Financial Literacy Classes
  • Food Distribution

Emergency Assistance Program (EAP) 

Community Health Action Network can provide some emergency supplies, such as diapers, infant formulas, vouchers or gift cards, clothing items, food, and utility assistance. Please note that these items are subject to availability as we may not have them on hand at all times.

Health and Wellness Programs 

Community Health Action Network provides the latest information about health insurance, disease-prevention, prescription medication assistance, and health screenings. We also offer regular nutrition education classes, complete with cooking demonstrations and food tastings. Upon completion, students will receive free gifts.

Car Safety Restraint Education Program 

Trained experts from Community Health Action Network provide detailed instruction on the safest way to select, install, and use child safety seats. We inspect car seats for signs of aging and defects. If you need a replacement, you will be provided with one free of charge.

Valuable Community Service

Work Experience

Volunteering at Community Health Action Network’s lively and fun-filled community events can help keep your work experience updated. Volunteer service hours look great on a resume, and you can add newly acquired job skills to the ones you already have.

One-Stop Referral Service 

If the Community Health Action Network can't provide the aid or service you need, we will help you get in touch with someone who can.

Civic Engagement: Lift Every Voice 

Community Health Action Network was initially established to address health disparities and provide emergency services for low-income families and other at-risk communities. However, as we carried out our mission, we noticed the growing demand for health education services to understand poverty and its underlying causes.


To address this need, we created the “From Where You Are” initiative. This program is designed to give instruction, guidance, support services, and incentives to clients who desire to set and reach goals of higher education, sound finances, and health and wellness goals.


From Where You Are begins with orientation and assessment to see where the specific needs of the clients lay. Then, we’ll offer three classes on education, financial management, and health and nutrition. Clients may enroll in as many of these classes as they choose.

*The From Where You Are initiative will also include a component addressing the specific issues of ex-offenders reintegrating back into the community.

Education Goals

The education component of the program aims to address the needs of the client at whatever starting point they are. We are in the process of raising funds for ESL and GED prep software. In the meantime, we have lined up speakers from local schools and colleges to come and speak about college admissions and enrollment. We will also have representatives from the Department of Education who will talk about financial aid.


Clients will be guided step-by-step through the completion of each stage of the educational goal. If the client opts to attend college, Community Health Action Network case managers will assist them with financial aid applications, admissions, and enrollment. In addition, we will assist new students with some school supplies, provide tutoring assistance, bus passes (when available), and ongoing counseling and support.

Financial Goals

The financial management segment addresses household budgeting and savings by discussing tax accounting, investments, and wealth management. Bank representatives will talk about establishing personal savings and checking accounts. Meanwhile, business owners from the local community will conduct "Steps to Success" seminars and share their personal stories.


The goal of the class is to assist clients in establishing and maintaining banks accounts in good standing, avoid predatory lenders, and demonstrate ways to budget, save, and repair their credit. By incorporating self-restraint and practicing delayed gratification strategies, clients will be encouraged and supported in establishing habits that will lead to asset building.


We will help clients obtain a credit report, open a bank account, and keep track of their spending habits. Community Health Action Network intends to include a coupon club where clients will gather to clip and exchange coupons, track sales at local stores, and share money-saving tips. With diligence and careful application, a family could be ready to buy a home or start a small business in 3 years or less.

Health and Wellness Goals

The health and nutrition component of the program will advise clients on how to transition from choosing foods for convenience to choosing foods for nutrition. This will include food preparation demonstrations, taste testing, coupon club, information on how to read labels, the hows and whys of good nutrition, and recipe shopping.


We will hold fun events, such as healthy cookouts and best recipe contests. Depending on the level of participation, we are looking to include a physical exercise segment where we will provide incentives for clients who set and meet fitness goals as funding allows.

Here’s How It Works

  1. We accept service requests and appointment sbookings through phone calls. Only applicants who have made appointments will be seen. Walk-ins will be scheduled for an appointment at a later date and asked to return at that time.
  2. Anyone may apply for our services at Community Health Action Network. However, families with children ages 0 to 5 years are our priority.
  3. Applicants requesting services will have to fill out an intake form. This form is how we will stay in contact with our clients, so it is very important that the information is kept up-to-date.
  4. Initial requests for emergency services will be accommodated upon completion of the application form according to the availability of supplies on hand.
  5. Upon subsequent requests for services, clients will be asked to attend or volunteer their time at a Community Health Action Network-sponsored event. As events and seminars are planned, clients are notified of the dates.
  6. Clients who regularly attend events and/or volunteer are given preference when items such as vouchers, baby items, food, clothing, gift cards, or other resources are available.
  7. That's it. The more clients put into the program, the more they will receive from it. Those who have committed to continuously work on projects and contribute to the program's success will not only be first to receive services, but they will also be considered first when paid positions become available at Community Health Action Network or our partners.
