Health Navigation


Lack of access to health care is one of the most critical issues facing refugee and immigrant communities in the United States. Due to linguistic and cultural barriers, it is extremely difficult for non-English speaking refugees and immigrants to access and utilize health care services.

JFCS East Bay’s bilingual health navigators help clients obtain health benefits and insurance, guide them through the complex health care system, advocate with doctors and other medical personnel, and teach clients how to navigate the system on their own.

Our health navigation services are provided free of charge to Afghans, Iranians, Iraqis, Syrians, and Russians by our Farsi-, Dari-, Arabic-, and Russian-speaking case managers.
