The Outreach Coordinator will focus on three programs. The first will be to engage the older adult population of Belmont-Cragin in health organizing efforts to ensure their ability to age in place, conduct benefits screening and enrollments, and develop workshops on older adult health issues. The second will be to assist in the coordination of the Common Ground Program by creating presentations, checking in with older adults, and conducting programmatic pre- and post-surveys. The third will be the creation and implementation of a culturally relevant nutritional health and wellness campaign for the Belmont-Cragin neighborhood focusing specifically on running healthy cooking and nutrition and well-being classes for Latino older adults as well as parents, families, and high school students after school. This program called “Comprando Rico y Sano,” is funded through a grant from UnidosUS and the Walmart Foundation.
