Community Health Initiative (CHI)

Community Health Initiative (CHI)

What We Do:

Help thousands of Napa children, families, adults and seniors receive no-cost or low-cost medical care, counseling, checkups, medication, dental and vision services. Trained staff help vulnerable community members understand and enroll in health insurance and navigate complex health plans so that they can receive the health care they need.

Health insurance is always complex, but especially for people challenged with language issues, immigration concerns and poverty.

CHI helps its clients learn about insurance programs from someone they can trust. Our trained bilingual and bi-cultural staff meets with individuals in person and provides them with one-on-one application assistance for their specific individual and family circumstances. We also make sure individuals renew their coverage each year. We are the trusted “go-to” agency for community members who need medical coverage.

Other Ways to Help:

  • Volunteer at our annual event, a dinner and auction.
  • Collect silent auction donations for annual fund-raising event.
  • Host a “friend-raising” dinner party.
  • Share CHI’s good work through social media.


CHI helped my family when my husband lost his job and we needed health insurance. Their assistance took the stress out of the process allowing us to focus on what was most important, family.
