dc.description.abstract Promotores and Community Health Workers (CHWs) are key frontline health workers effective in decreasing health disparities, improving health outcomes, and providing linkage to resources for individuals and communities. In California, there is a need for policies addressing infrastructure, professional identity, workforce development, and financing. The goal of this exploratory research was to assess the landscape of CHW programs in San Diego County. Data was collected through electronic distribution of a 25-question survey. Survey data was analyzed using quantitative and qualitative methods to prove information on the skill set, training, employment status, and wages of CHWs. The top barriers organizations faced in the implementation of sustainable CHW programs were secure funding streams, time, and lack of adequate resources for training. Implications of this research are the identification of gaps in capacity of CHW programs in San Diego County. en_US
