What are Community Transitions services?
The Compass Health Community Transitions program partners with community emergency service providers to engage individuals utilizing emergency services for their healthcare needs. Together, the team provides these individuals with resources and services better suited to support their health and well-being in the long term.
Who does Community Transitions serve?
Community Transitions serves residents of all ages in Edmonds, Lynnwood, Mountlake Terrace, and Mukilteo regardless of insurance coverage. We are focused on serving individuals who will benefit from connecting to services and supports beyond emergency services.
Approach to care
Community Transitions strives to address all needs that impact a person’s health, from physical and behavioral health needs to social needs that affect an individual’s health, such as housing or shelter, food, financial, transportation, and a support network. We also strive to improve access to and engagement in services by conducting outreach to individuals at various locations throughout the community. Compass Health has found one of the best ways to engage individuals in need of Community Transition services is through outreach in partnership with emergency service providers such as law enforcement.
This program is supported by several partners in south Snohomish County, including:
- Lynnwood Police Department
- Mountlake Terrace Police Department
- Edmonds Police Department
- Mukilteo Police Department
- Verdant Health Commission.
