Office Greeter and Receptionist Volunteer

Utah Health and Human Rights Project (UHHR) is in need of a front office greeter and receptionist.

Medical Case Management Volunteer 

UHHR is seeking a committed volunteer to help UHHR clinical staff and medical director to advocate for UHHR clients in the following ways:

  • Help uninsured clients access health services through community partner medical clinics that have an existing relationship with UHHR. This will include making referrals and/or following-up on referrals made to our community partners.

  • Sending a letter to the Primary Care Physician about any medication changes made at the time of the psychiatry clinic.
  • Provide medical advocacy for clients by contacting PCPs or other health care proviers on an as needed basis if UHHR clients have questions about their medications, other health concerns, or have a new medical need.
  • Assist uninsured clients with filling out forms to obtain free prescription medications.
  • Commitment of 6-8 hours per week and at least six months.

Requirements: RN, APRN, NP, PharmaD, advanced nursing/medical students

Volunteer Drivers

UHHR is urgently in need of volunteers to help newly arrived or physically challenged clients arrive at critical medical, dental, psychiatry, and mental health therapy appointments. Lack of transporation is one of the most significant barriers for refugees trying to access healthcare. Help them acheive physical and psychological health by transporting them to these appointments. Volunteers are reimbursed for miles travelled.

Massage Therapy and Alternative Therapies

Currently, UHHR engages four volunteer massage therapists who provide a total of six massage therapy sessions each week to clients struggling with pain, insomnia or tension related to their trauma. Massage therapy has proven enormously successful not only in alleviating physical pain and anxiety but in increasing clients’ trust and receptivity to other therapeutic modalities, such as individual and group mental health services.

Although regular, onsite, massage therapy is a relatively new program we are seeing that clients who partake of alternative therapies such as weekly massage and yoga, increase their self-sufficiency and become more engaged with their families and communities in less time than clients who choose not to receive massage or practice yoga.

 English Tutoring

Through a partnership with the English Skills Learning Center, UHHR is able to provide clients with English tutoring. Clients can receive either targeted one on one tutoring or participate in an integrated class, based on their level of proficiency. Learning English is an empowering experience that builds confidence, reduces social isolation and increases marketability to potential employers.
