Community Integration Specialist
Community Program Officer R18
Connect people in B.C. with supports to achieve better social outcomes
The Service Delivery Division provides income and disability assistance services online, by phone, or face-to-face in our communities. We strive to deliver reliable, responsive, inclusive, and accessible services to individuals and families in British Columbia.
Community Integration Specialists are important links in their communities. They create trust-based relationships to help people navigate systems and access support services. Acting as a connection to community-based supports and services, they communicate available Ministry services and programs to help people meet their needs.
As a Community Integration Specialist, you will work with people who may have mental health and substance use challenges and are at risk of losing their housing or experiencing homelessness. You'll work with government and community-based non-profit agencies. You'll continuously build relationships and increase awareness of your role in the community. In delivering service through outreach programs, you'll consider each person's unique needs and cultural wellness when making decisions, advocating and liaising on their behalf.
Watch this video to hear from current Community Integration Specialists about the work they do.
In your role, you'll work in the community most of the time (up to 85% of your scheduled work week). As part of a cohesive team, you'll be supported with comprehensive training, and a coach /mentor relationship.
