The Community Support Worker (CSW) is the first point of contact for many new clients. The CSW’s overall objective is to assess client needs and connect the client with the resources to meet those needs within CCHC and /or in the broader community.
The Community Support Worker is part of Centretown Community Health Centre’s Mental Health and Addictions team and works closely with the Centre’s multidisciplinary Urban Health team to ensure wrap around services and care coordination for individuals with chronic health issues exacerbated by substance use disorders. The Community Support worker is skilled at engaging clients; assessing care needs related to social determinants of health; initiating and following up with care plans; and working collaboratively with other care team health professionals.
The CSW’s primary responsibilities are to navigate clients to the appropriate services (information and referral) and/or provide short-term support and intervention for clients requiring assistance (care coordination / crisis intervention / housing support / financial support / information and referral / short-term counselling/harm reduction/practical assistance). The CSW proactively engages clients and ensures that clients are bridged to the appropriate services both internally (if applicable) and within the broader community. The CSW, as with all CCHC staff, is responsible for addressing barriers to service and ensuring that each unique individual who walks through CCHC doors is met with dignity, and respect and are provided the resources to meet their needs.
