COVID-19 Response Project Assistant


Catholic Charities Maine Refugee and Immigration Services has a Full-Time opening for a COVID-19 Response Project Assistant. This position is available through December 2021.

The COVID-19 Response Project Assistant will be the first point of contact for the Maine CDC/DHHS when they learn of a quarantined/isolated COVID-19 positive case or close contact who speaks a language other than English. After receiving a referral, the PA will complete an assessment that reviews languages, case size, housing situation, geographic location, and immigration status. The PA will then reach out to ECBO partners and make the referral for support. The ECBO agency who takes on the case then becomes the primary point of contact for the CDC assigned epidemiologist. They work as a two person “care team” providing quarantine/isolation education, case management, and contract tracing services in the language of the client. The PA is responsible for following up on the ECBO partners and ensuring that all services are delivered to the client as needed. The PA will coordinate with partners including CAP agencies, quarantine shelter staff, transportation support and social service support partners, Strengthen-me partners, etc. as needed to meet respective needs of those referred.

The PA is responsible for all referrals and case tracking for clients who need cultural brokering or language supports and are referred through the DHHS social services system. The PA will work closely with MIRC’s COVID-19 Referral Coordinator as a two person “coordination team” from DHHS/CDC to ECBO partners and vice-versa. Resumes will be accepted until position is filled.
