Community Health Choice created the Life Services Department in 2018. The department provides services outside of health care and aims to address the social determinants of health for Community’s Members and families. The overall goal is to invest in the futures of our Members and their families by providing them support to pursue their career and education goals.
One Life Services initiative is called CareerReady
CareerReady is another way Community is moving life forward for their members and their families. CareerReady includes different programs to support our members and their families to find a job and jumpstart their careers.
Each person accepted is called a CareerReady Scholar. Every CareerReady Scholar has a Life Coach cheering and supporting them along the journey to starting their careers. Some CareerReady programs include scholarships that cover the tuition, fees, and books needed to complete a job certification at Houston Community College,San Jacinto College or with a job training partner. Other programs are designed to specifically help our members and their families find a job to support the family’s success.
