FIRM is pleased to share two job descriptions for our COVID-19 Equity Project. We will be hiring multiple individuals, so please share widely.

The Community Health Worker positions have a number of responsibilities including conducting outreach remotely and in person, staffing COVID-19 testing sites and calling individuals who test positive to make sure they have the resources that they need to stay safe and stay home while they recover. All Community Health Workers must be fluent in speaking and be able to explain health concepts in a language spoken by refugee communities in Fresno (Hmong, Lao, Khmer, Thai, Vietnamese, Amharic, Arabic, Farsi, Dari or others)
Lots of community health and workplace safety training will be provided upon hire.
