Since 2009, a community-based, collaborative exemplar in Richmond, Virginia, involving 8 satellite clinics of the state health department, has been implemented within public housing units to focus on prevention and access to care. These satellite centers, known a resource center (RCs), are staffed by public health nurses, community health workers, and nurse practitioners working in complementary roles. The RCs have provided education to 2609 clients on family planning, safe sex practices, safe car seat use, and screening for sexually transmitted infections and have made 9591 patient referrals to health, social, and community services.
