Resource Connection

Connecting People to Services

Health is influenced by every aspect of a person’s life. The places you work, learn, play, and age, the opportunities you receive, the food you eat, and where you live. Creating health means giving people the tools to respond to the circumstances in their lives and to take care of themselves in every way.

CHDF’s Resource Connection program seeks to connect people to those tools. This free, confidential service supports individuals to meet the health and well-being needs of themselves and their families by creating connections to a broad network of health and social services.

Resource Connection is more than just an information service. Our Resource Navigator creates referrals to local, state-wide, and national services, and then helps to follow through on those referrals, ensuring that clients receive the support they need. We assist through every step of the process, from identifying and contacting service providers to filling out paperwork and helping you get your questions answered.

Meet our Navigator

Our Resource Navigator, Brittney Plaisted, is here to help you get the support you need. As a longtime resident of Elko County, Brittney has actively engaged in the community as a parent, community member, and volunteer for nearly twenty years. Her volunteer efforts focus on supporting local programs that help our youth as a way of giving back to the community in which she’s raised her kids.

For the past seven years, Brittney has also served the Elko community as a professional in the non-profit sector. During this time, Brittney returned to school, obtaining her master’s degree in social work at the University of Nevada Reno. Brittney uses her degree to care for her community on a professional level, with experience supporting children and adults across a variety of life circumstances.

In her capacity as Elko CHDF’s Resource Navigator, Brittney seeks to continue and expand her work to benefit her community by helping community members receive local, state, and national resources to support the well-being of themselves and their families.
