MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

The Wellness Coalition has been working for the past three years on a project funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The goal of their project is to increase the number of community health workers in the River Region. The project is aimed at assisting people with low incomes who are uninsured and make sure they find the proper health resources they need.

By expanding the number of community health workers in the River Region, the Wellness Coalition is hoping to provide health care access and support to people with little or no health insurance.

"This project focuses on basically improving their access to resources so whether it's healthy food access or health care access and so they're able to receive those resources at easier avenues to get those resources so that they can improve their health overall," Justin Alexander, with the Wellness Coalition, said.

This project will help those in Autauga, Elmore, Lowndes, Macon and Montgomery counties.
