Baltimore Health Corps plans to hire and train residents

The Mayor’s Office of Employment Development, and The Rockefeller Foundation announced the launch of a groundbreaking pilot program – the Baltimore Health Corps –designed to address the city’s interconnected economic and public health crises caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Baltimore Health Corps will recruit, train, and employ more than 300 residents who are currently jobless during the pandemic to serve as contact tracers and care coordinators for Baltimore City residents. Health Corps staff will be deployed to address critical COVID-19 needs in Baltimore’s most vulnerable communities, performing three key functions: contact tracing, public health education outreach, and care coordination and social support.

Over the course of 12 months, the Baltimore Health Corps will serve three core objectives:


Job Creation and Skills Training: The Baltimore Health Corps will onboard, and support hundreds of recently unemployed or out-of-work Baltimore residents in building careers as community health workers (CHWs). Community health is a growing field that bridges communities to healthcare services. Practitioners leverage trusted community relationships and shared life experience to improve access to care for vulnerable populations.

Controlling the Spread of COVID-19: In order to stop the spread of COVID-19, aggressive case investigation and contact tracing are needed in conjunction with support for individuals in self-isolation or self-quarantine. The Baltimore Health Corps will significantly expand the city’s existing contact tracing system, enabling the Baltimore City Health Department to reach communities with a depth of service not currently possible.

Serving the Social Needs of Baltimore’s Most Vulnerable: Controlling the spread of COVID-19 is not limited to case investigation and contact tracing. It is also critical to provide social support to those impacted, including supporting individuals who are close contacts of cases to quarantine safely, creating housing options for people with COVID-19 who need to be isolated, and supporting families of ill and isolated residents. The Baltimore Health Corps will address the social needs of Baltimore’s most vulnerable populations such as older adults, those uninsured, and those who are pregnant and have young children through enhanced care coordination through existing nonprofit groups

The Baltimore Health Corps is hiring immediately. More information about the program can be found here, while those looking to apply can go here.
