Community Health Response Worker

09/26/2023

Community Health Response Workers (CHRW) are responsible for connecting with Chicago communities as frontline workers who have a close understanding of the community they serve. They serve as the liaison/link/intermediary between health/social services and the community to facilitate access to services and resources to improve the quality and cultural competence of service delivery. The CHRW will build individual and community capacity by increasing health knowledge and self-sufficiency through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, and resource navigation. The CHRW will serve as a bridge between the community and the healthcare, government, and other social service systems.

JOB POSITION: Community Health Response Worker

PROGRAM SUMMARY

Despite the City’s equity-focused response, COVID-19 disease and pandemic impacts have expanded the racial life expectancy gap in Chicago and deepened underlying inequities. There is more work to do to build a healthier and more equitable city. The Community Health Response Corps will cultivate a public health workforce to tackle the drivers of disparity between White communities compared to Black and Hispanic/Latinx communities, with a major focus on chronic disease and communicable diseases including COVID-19, and additional efforts on other drivers of the life expectancy gap (infant mortality, violence, and opioid overdose). This strategy unites CDPH’s commitment to improving public health with the City’s commitment to racial and economic equity across neighborhoods. The Response Corps is a major step toward achieving the vision of Healthy Chicago 2025: Creating a city where all people and all communities are empowered, free from oppression, and strengthened by equitable access to resources, opportunities, and environments and opportunities that promote optimal health and well-being.

CDPH (Chicago Department of Public Health) selected the Chicago Cook Workforce Partnership (The Partnership) through a procurement process to serve as the Lead Coordinating
Organization to continue the work under the Chicago Community Health Response Corps. In 2020, The Partnership led the former Chi Tracing Contact Tracing and Chicago COVID-19 Community Response Corps. The Corps was comprised of over 800 Chicago residents who responded to the call to help protect Chicago communities that have been most devasted by the pandemic. The Corps consisted of a variety of positions including Community Response Workers and Supervising Community Response Workers. The Corps Members conducted targeted activities that limited the spread of COVID-19. They were employed by 31 Community Based Organizations and supported by The Partnership and the following Project Partners that deliver training, professional development, and resource coordination: the University of Illinois at Chicago School of Public Health, NORC at the University of Chicago, Malcolm X College of the City Colleges of Chicago, and Sinai Urban Health Institute.

With the new Chicago Community Health Response Corps, 11 Community Based Organizations (CBO) will hire a total of approximately 150 Community Health Response Workers and Supervisors to enter the new phase of the COVID-19 Recovery phase. They will continue community health work in the most needed priority and economic hardship communities in the City of Chicago. The Corps will provide basic chronic disease prevention and health promotion, as well as COVID-19 education and health literacy work through community outreach engagement and the City’s Call Center and Resource Coordination Hub.
