The new Community Health Response Corps is leveraging the expertise and infrastructure CDPH and its partners built for the COVID-19 emergency response – with a focus now on promoting overall health, resilience, and well-being.
The Response Corps members receive professional development training promoting careers in the public health field and link community members to health care information, resources and services through neighborhood events, canvassing and a call center.
Through the Chicago Recovery Plan, the Response Corps has an expanded scope to help residents access reliable information, recovery support programs, and specific health resources. The Chicago Department of Public Health seeks to sustain community outreach and public health workforce development through the Response Corps to residents in priority community areas most affected by the pandemic.
