by Harris, Keri R., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 62; 1486646
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to locate funding source and write a grant to fund a social work position at the Jewish Community Clinic in Rohnert Park, California. An extensive literature review was performed to investigate the best ways to serve the target population and to provide the services that are desperately needed from social workers in these settings. A search was conducted to locate an appropriate finder with a mission consistent with the goals associated with a community clinic social work position.

California's community health clinics are vital to the health care safety net system providing community health improvement and outreach activities for uninsured and underserved populations. Clinics often struggle to respond to growing demands for their services. In response to the challenges of the health care environment, clinics, more than ever, depend on social workers to help facilitate referrals, provide resources, and coordinate additional health care services.
