Details: Commensurate with experience
Charm City Care Connection, Inc. (CCC) is a 501(c)(3) non¬profit organization founded in September 2009 by Baltimore community leaders and students, with the goal of helping low-income residents access sustainable, high-quality health care and other social services. The mission of Charm City Care Connection, Inc., is to connect residents of marginalized communities in Baltimore to high-quality healthcare services and seek to address any obstacles that might threaten that connection. We do this by building long-term partnerships between volunteers and community residents, empowering both parties to learn from each other as they work to promote health and well-being within Baltimore's fragmented healthcare system.
Our clinic services consist of two arms: the Health Resource Center and the Preventive Health Screening Program. Our Health Resource Center (HRC) accompanies low-income Baltimore residents by providing assistance with enrollment in health insurance programs and other social services. We help clients access primary medical care, mental health treatment, and substance abuse treatment. We also endeavor to overcome social and economic barriers to care through community resources such as food stamps, energy bill assistance, and job training. Our Preventive Health Screening program complements this intensive community-based case management approach. Our screening teams triage our clients’ medical needs to determine how quickly they need to access health care. The screening teams also help our clients monitor indicators of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and substance abuse, which are among the primary causes of excess morbidity and mortality in the neighborhoods in which we work. Finally, our screeners employ motivational interviewing skill techniques to help motivate our clients to engage in life style modification. Preventive Health Screenings are offered twice per week during nontraditional hours, on Tuesday evenings from 6-9pm and Saturdays from 12-5pm, in order to maximize accessibility.
