Our volunteer application for the Spring 2017 HRC cohort is now open!
The priority deadline is February 7th 2017, and the FINAL deadline is February 14, 2017.
Our training will be on Sunday, March 5th.
Charm City Clinic is seeking physicians, nurses, students, health educators, and community members at large to volunteer at the clinic.
If you are interested in volunteering in any of the roles described below, please email: email@example.com
We presently offer two long-term, immersive volunteer positions that require completion of our training and a one-year commitment to meet the needs of the clinic:
Health Resource Center (HRC): Case Managers
HRC Case Managers accompany low-income Baltimore residents through the difficult process of accessing sustainable, high-quality health care and other social services. They provide assistance with enrollment in health insurance programs, finding solutions for primary medical care, mental health treatment, and substance abuse disorders, and stabilizing social and economic barriers to care through resources such as food stamps and assistance with medical bills. Case Managers maintain long-term relationships with their clients and, in line with the mission of our partner, the Men and Families Center, meet clients “where they’re at” by following up at the clinic, by telephone, by home visit, in the neighborhood – whatever it takes to help clients meet their health goals.
- Applications for Case Manager are accepted on an ongoing basis.
- If your application is accepted, you must participate in our case manager training before you can begin.
- We will notify you of your acceptance once we’ve received your application and supporting documents, checked references and done the background check.
Preventative Health Screening Program: Screeners (for medical students, residents, fellows, RNs, nurse practitioners only)
CCC Screeners complement our community-based case management approach by helping, under the supervision of licensed physicians, our clients monitor chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, and addiction. There are among the primary causes of excess morbidity and mortality in the neighborhoods where we work. We take preventive health into the community centers and neighborhoods. In contrast to traditional settings where time constraints are ever-present, our health screening visits often last an hour or more, as clients discuss their needs, concerns and progress in detail with our screeners and physicians to co-develop an individualized plan for accessing care and improving health. Our goal is to create a comfortable and safe space for low-income Baltimoreans to stay informed about their indicators of health and disease in tandem with the efforts of the clients’ primary care providers.
Note: Screeners follow a different application and training process and schedule than that of case managers. Please inquire.
Additionally, community members from a wide variety of backgrounds are encouraged to volunteer at the Clinic. We have episodic (one-time) volunteer needs as well as other roles that develop from time to time. We need Spanish speakers, too! Any and all skills are needed and we will work to accommodate anyone with a passion for serving the local community. Community members play a variety of roles in administration and support, and may become eventually become, if they wish, Case Managers with successful completion of our training.
We also currently seek volunteers for the following roles:
- Clinic Receptionist
- Clinic Runner
- Social Media Meister
- Spanish Translator
- Tech Geek
These volunteer roles require less training and a shorter time commitment, and are a wonderful way to get to know the clients and operations of or clinic.

Why volunteer with us? As a Charm City Clinic volunteer, you’ll meet and work with like-minded folks passionate about being of service to Baltimoreans. You’ll learn new skills and enjoy volunteer social and training events. Successful volunteers may receive a letter of reference or a document of their total hours of service, if needed and upon request. Last but not least, you will feel good about what you are doing.
