Founded in 1970, the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center (EBNHC) provides care to more than 70,000 from East Boston and the neighboring communities. EBNHC's mission is to provide easily accessible, affordable, appropriate, high-quality, personalized, coordinated primary care for all who live and work in East Boston and the surrounding communities, without regard to age, income, insurance status, language, culture, or social circumstances.
In an effort to eliminate health disparities, EBNHC has created a Community Resource Center. The primary role of the fellow will be to work in the Community Resource Center, connecting individuals and families to concrete services and resources within the community that they have been unable to access on their own. The fellow will work predominantly with immigrants, low-income individuals, and patients with complex medical needs, linking them to medical, social service, and legal services. Additionally, the fellow will take a lead role in coordinating other community serving agencies for EBNHC patients onsite at EBNHC and will oversee their operations. The fellow will actively seek innovative ways to to help patients access basic needs and look to bring new resources to EBNHC.
As a Micah Fellow with the Life Together program, the EBNHC Care Navigator will also participate in spiritual formation and leadership training for 8 hours per week; and life in intentional Christian community with other fellows.
