Health Access: Assist newly arrived refugees as they navigate health care appointments. Health Access volunteers provide transportation, either via public transportation or a personal vehicle, to get refugees to health appointments, walk them to the correct clinic, help them through the check-in process and make sure they have everything they need before they leave. Health Access volunteers are key to making sure our clients feel comfortable and supported within an intimidating system. Volunteers also communicate with the IRC health team to make sure that if there are issues or required next steps, we can address them. The interactions with clients served are one-time interactions.

  • Commitment: For this role we are looking for people who live in Salt Lake City and have availability for a full work day (9-5), but the commitment is 3-4 hours a week 2 times per month. Each Friday you will receive an appointment confirmation with client information for the next week. The full day of availability helps us to actually schedule appointments as smaller windows are hard to work within.

(All volunteers are asked to donate $45 to cover the cost of the background check, which you can submit here: https://help.rescue.org/donate/us-salt-lake-city-ut Once the donation is received, we will process the online background check through HireRight which will prompt you via email to submit some information. Once that clears, we will follow-up with shift schedules and training information)
