Office of Community Care


Welcome to the Office of Community Care. Our team is led by experienced and compassionate community health workers, community health educators, nurses and licensed clinical social workers. We’re trained in evidence-based techniques like motivational interviewing and trauma-informed care to help us develop trusting relationships with our neighbors throughout central and southern Illinois. We offer a range of exclusive and research-informed programs designed to create community health workers of the future while also promoting better health for our patients in real time. We seek to engage patients and improve outcomes for people affected by complex medical, psychological and social needs.
