HBI-DC partners with community-based (CBOs) and faith-based organizations (FBOs) to design culturally and linguistically appropriate education materials for its target population. We have linguistic expertise and provide education materials in English, Vietnamese, Korean, Mongolian, Chinese (traditional and simplified), Arabic, Amharic, French, Cambodian. By working with CBOs and FBOs, we are able to serve the target population as well as guarantee a good turn-out at education seminars and screening events. We also work with local clinics, physician networks, hospitals, and research institutions to link patients to care and treatment services.

To deliver services, we collaborate mostly with CBOs that serve niche communities, such as ethnic and faith-based community members. Most of these organizations are also grassroots volunteer-based organizations. We work with over 70 different organizations each year, engaging their community leaders in outreach efforts to ensure culturally and linguistically appropriate education materials.

We also partner with local health departments and clinics to coordinate free vaccinations for at-risk patients.
