The purpose of this ethnographic thesis project is to understand the operations and inner workings of two community health programs (CHP’s) and the role their staff members play in assisting children and families in accessing health resources. The research was conducted at two programs, The Access to Resources for Children’s Health, Education, and Support Program (ARCHES) and the Truancy Reduction Center (TRC). Both of these programs operate under the auspices of the Boys and Girls Club of Garden Grove’s (BGCGG) community health services in Garden Grove, California. Data for this project were collected based on participant observation, socio-demographic surveys, and interviews with outreach workers, directors, case managers, and interns at both programs. This thesis project examines the staff members’ perspectives and experiences in assisting clients and the barriers that their clients face.
