Community Health Workers

The Noble Foundation provides community health worker trainings and supports Community Health Workers to work with communities of color in Southwest Washington.

In 2018 and 2019, TNF hosted community health worker programs at Fort Vancouver High School and Kelso High School. Every week for six months, a small group of students met to complete 90 hours of community-based, self-led community health worker training together. The students also planned and hosted outreach events. This was the beginning of an effort to establish culturally-specific, community-led programs within three communities in Southwest Washington: Black, Chuukese, and Latinx.

Census 2020

We're proud to be a part of the Washington Census Alliance! TNF is encouraging and supporting hard-to-count communities in Southwest Washington to fill out the 2020 Census form. We're focused on reaching Southwest Washington's Black, Chuukese, Latinx, and LGBTQIA+ communities digitally and in person. 


Cross-Cultural Narrative Project

Since 2014, The Noble Foundation has worked to capture authentic community voice in Southwest Washington. The cross-cultural narrative project is designed to ensure marginalized commUNITY voices are centered in our current and future initiatives.


"It is so important to understand how Southwest Washington's marginalized community members experience the community. Our goal is to support the hopes, dreams, and passions of the commUNITY." - Ashley Giha, T
