Illinois Helps: Volunteer Your Services During COVID-19 in IL
The NASW-Illinois Chapter has been working with Governor J. B. Pritzker's office on a critical call-up called Illinois Helps. This necessary measure was created to encourage qualified professionals to become a part of an Emergency System for Advance Registration of Volunteer Health Professionals (ESAR-VHP), an alert system that, when activated, would quickly and efficiently identify medical professionals who could respond during a significant disaster or public health emergency.
During the current COVID-19 outbreak, Illinois is looking for medically trained individuals to join the fight. Individuals that register here may be potentially contacted to work in a hospital surge or alternative housing setting. If you are not a medical professional, you can find other volunteer opportunities at www.Serve.Illinois.gov.
