Commit to Connect's December 2023 webinar highlighted No Wrong Door Virginia’s Social Health Connector platform. The Social Health Connector (https://easyaccess.virginia.gov/soheco_survey) uses a person-centered virtual assessment to generate a customized social health connection plan for people with disabilities, older adults, and family caregivers. This personalized plan leverages AI and machine learning to offer insights into individualized risks and strengths, highlighting local recommended resources for users within the state of Virginia. After individuals complete the survey, they receive a customized social connection plan. During the webinar, the Virginia Department for Aging and Rehabilitative Services, Virginia Commonwealth University, Virginia 2-1-1, and United Way Worldwide provided an overview of the tool and how other aging and disability resource centers (ADRCs) and No Wrong Door (NWD) systems can replicate this approach. The Social Health Connector and United Way Worldwide won the Administration for Community Living’s MENTAL Health Innovation Challenge (https://acl.gov/MENTAL/Phase1winners) in 2020.
