IAMHP is partnering with the Pritzker Administration and the Red Cross to assist in coordinating crisis counseling, mental health, and other volunteer needs. In collaboration with the Department of Health and Family Services (HFS) and the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA), the entire industry of the Illinois Medicaid Managed Care Organizations are volunteering their time and resources to staff the center with crisis counselors and plan navigators to assist community members. This is a continuation of the commitment MCOs have to serving communities across the state.
If you are willing to assist with the current and ongoing needs in the Highland Park community, please complete the following form with your information: Highland Park Volunteer Tracker. NOTE: THERE IS A 6 HOUR/DAY MAX SO PLEASE SELECT ONLY ONE SLOT PER DAY.
Volunteers will also need to sign up as volunteers with the Red Cross. You can complete that information here: https://www.redcross.org/volunteer/become-a-volunteer.html.
Please note that today volunteers are serving in Highland Park, however in the future additional crisis response teams will be recruited and deployed as necessary. Thank you for volunteering to support Illinoisians in need.
