Exception Request Process for COVID-19 vaccine ( Exceptions only apply to candidate(s) offered a position; please do not submit at this time) Portland Street Response is seeking to fill two positions for Peer Support Specialist . These are Limited Duration positions with the term ending June 30, 2022. Persons appointed to limited term positions will be designated as limited duration employees whose appointment shall not exceed two (2) years except for the extension of grants or funding from outside sources. About Portland Street Response (PSR): Portland Street Response is designed to serve as a third branch of the City of Portland's first responder system: Police, Fire, and Portland Street Response. The Bureau of Emergency Communications' (BOEC) role will be to dispatch Police, Fire, or AMR if the call relates to saving a life, reporting a fire, a medical emergency, or reporting a crime. For other non-life-threatening (but crisis-related) scenarios currently responded to by Police and Fire (such as behavioral health issues and welfare checks) Portland Street Response will be dispatched as an unarmed, first responder team, trained in behavioral health and on-scene medical assistance. Two primary benefits of creating this new branch of first responders for non-life-threatening but crisis-related calls are: Enables the City of Portland to free up Police and Fire resources to attend to life saving and crime-related calls for help; and Provides quick and compassionate response by trauma informed members trained in crisis management, emergency medicine, and behavioral health. This program is expected to: Reduce the number of calls traditionally responded to by Police where criminal activity is not present. Reduce the number of individuals transported to the emergency department for low acuity medical related issues that could instead be addressed in a pre-hospital care setting. Reduce the number of behavioral health and lower acuity medical calls traditionally responded to by Police and Fire.

This person will report to the Portland Street Response Program Manager.

In addition to co-responding to 911 calls, the PSS will follow up with individuals as needed and provide support, advocacy, and/or education in overall health and wellness. A key function of the PSS that differentiates this role apart from the rest of the team, is the responsibility to serve as a liaison or link between health/social services and the community. The PSS facilitates access to social services and agencies through a range of activities such as outreach, community education, informal counseling, social support, and advocacy. Major Duties and Responsibilities: Meet with peers in the community and/or their homes to establish and maintain a positive and trusting relationship that is person-centered, strengths-based, and trauma-informed; Attend and participate in team meetings to gain knowledge and communicate program goals and the needs of the individuals being served, to include integrating peer voice in planning, policy, and evaluation; Assist peers with identifying and engaging various community resources and supports. Offer peers educational opportunities to explore new resources, information, and alternatives to utilizing the emergency department for non-emergent needs; Documents support services in a program database in a manner that assures compliance with policies, program procedures and local, state, and federal regulations.
