The Early Childhood Supports & Services program, located in Jefferson Parish, will serve as the local early adopter site for children (0-5) and their families in Jefferson, Orleans, St. Bernard, and Plaquemines Parishes. Community Health Workers report to the Site Director of the Early Childhood Supports and Services (ECSS) office. Community Health Workers (CHWs) are responsible for making contact with families identified as needing assistance from ECSS. CHWs will assist families with identifying support and mental health needs, registering them with the ECSS clinic, supporting families as they obtain needed services, and will be the liaison for the families and their infant and early childhood mental health clinician. CHWs will attend ECSS Network partner meetings and support the families in their interactions with outside agencies, checking in with families regularly to ensure that their needs are being met. CHWs will go into the community to identify families who are eligible for ECSS services, and to meet with ECSS-enrolled families.
