Supporting Community Healthcare is a rewarding role, come join a wonderful organization! LifeLong Medical Care is looking for a Community Health Worker to work in our TRUST Health Center in Oakland under the Health Homes grant. This is a full time, hourly, benefit eligible position.
Trust Health Center’s diverse and unique care team supports health through encouragement, and by blending medical, mental and social care under one roof. We help people experiencing homelessness in the Bay Area through an intentionally created community where people without their own safe space feel welcomed and accepted.
The Health Homes grant is an innovative program to support and empower identified high risk-high needs patients to improve their health outcomes. The multidisciplinary team (RN, MD, MSWs, LCSWs, and CHWs) works together to support patients and address the social determinants that impact health. Activities include outreach and engagement, development of the care plan, linkage of the patient with resources (food, housing, transport, financial) as well as linking the patient with care within the clinic. Ideally, the CN CHW will be a trusted member of the community in which they will work. This relationship will enable the CHW to serve as a liaison between health and social services and the clinic. Much of this work will take place in various settings – medical office, specialists, hospitals and patients’ homes. This position functions in partnership with Community Health Center Network (CHCN) in San Leandro. There will be a period of orientation with the central team at CHCN; after that the CHW will be based out of LifeLong TRUST Health Center with weekly meeting time at CHCN.
