COME WORK WITH US!
We have an opening for a full time HOME (Health Outreach Mobile Engagement) Program Coordinator. This position typically works 37.5 hours per week Monday to Friday, with some remote evening/weekend flexibility occasionally required to support clinic activities as scheduled. This position offers a unique opportunity to make a difference in the lives of those impacted by homelessness, mental illness, substance use, poverty, complex and/or chronic health conditions. The Coordinator works with community partners and the HOME Program operations staff to effectively and efficiently provide clinical and social services to highly marginalized individuals in our community. Reporting to the Director of Program Development and Complex Urban Health, the successful candidate will provide leadership to support the work of the HOME Operations team while working with community partners to ensure successful delivery of services.
The HOME Program was developed to improve the health outcomes and health equity of highly marginalized individuals by providing health services to people where they are: shelters, encampments, housing, and in other community settings. The program is a collaborative approach between the London InterCommunity Health Centre, Middlesex-London Paramedic Service, CMHA Thames Valley Addiction and Mental Health Services, Regional HIV/AIDS Connection, and London Cares Homeless Response Services. The inter-disciplinary team provides primary care, harm reduction, support with substance use, basic needs, and wrap-around care services at various sites across the city utilizing our mobile clinic vehicles. This healthcare program aims to engage individuals who face barriers to accessing traditional models of care in harm reduction, stabilizing healthcare, and comprehensive care services. Partners will work collaboratively from an anti-oppression, anti-racism, health equity framework anchored in a participant-led approach.
