In partnership with the Chicago Public Library (CPL), the Social Worker in the Library project will embed a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW) at two Uptown community sites to improve the quality of life for individuals who are experiencing homelessness, unemployment, mental illness, and other complex needs. The project will provide individual assessments as well as personalized referrals for primary care, behavioral health services, and social determinants of health. Through an innovative software platform, PH and its community-based partners will be able to track individual and group referral outcomes and therefore will contribute to the national data on libraries as social service connectors.
