School-Based Human Service Specialist

Who we are: La Clínica de La Raza is a community-based health center committed to providing culturally appropriate, high-quality, and accessible health care to the diverse communities of the San Francisco Bay Area. We have spent over 40 years advocating for and creating a health home for the many that have been denied access to care. As health care activists, we are dedicated to making sure individuals who do not have health coverage get the same level of quality healthcare as those who have it. From our genesis as a community health center in 1971, we understood that we cannot heal our communities without also addressing the economic and social factors that affect health. Many times, this requires that we go outside and provide services in other settings to build the bridge that links individuals to our health center for preventive and primary care. Over 90,000 individuals come to La Clínica because it is a welcoming place that addresses the whole person, coordinating and connecting them to a broad network of services to improve and maintain their health and well-being. While we are still known for our activism and spirit of social justice, we are also proud to have grown into a sophisticated provider of primary health care services with 35 sites across Alameda, Contra Costa and Solano counties.

Exceptional frontline service:: We are looking for Human Service Specialists (HSS) who are inspired to deliver a first-rate experience to our most valued stakeholders: our patients. As some of the first people to encounter our patients, Human Service Specialists are entrusted with welcoming them and ensuring that the visit is memorable and hassle-free. Human Service Specialists take pride and ownership of patient interaction and do this by assisting individuals and families to enroll in or maintain health coverage. They are valuable resources to our patients as they help determine initial and on-going eligibility for programs such as Medi-Cal, Healthy Families, F-Pact, pre-natal programs and other assistance programs. The ideal candidate has a passion for service. To be successful, you need to enjoy interacting with people from diverse backgrounds, to feel energized by a fast-paced clinic environment, and remain calm under pressure. Human Service Specialists should have a track record of impeccable attendance, good performance and serving others while being friendly and helpful in seeking ways to support other colleagues.
