About Us

Hopkins Community Connection is a student organization designed to address essential needs of patients through universal social needs screening and navigation to community resources and benefit programs. Our organization partners with JHMI and operates Resource Desks at the Harriet Lane Pediatric Clinic, Bayview Comprehensive Care Practice, Bayview Children's Medical Practice (Spanish speaking advocates only) and the East Baltimore Medical Center to address the social determinants of health. Student advocates assist patients and families to access essential resources such as food, housing, heat and electricity in order to be healthy. Advocates then follow up with their clients on a weekly basis, to ensure they get the appropriate resources to address their needs. By learning about the health care system, addressing social needs, and making lasting bonds with Baltimore families, Hopkins Community Connection volunteers will become the nation's next great health care leaders.

Meeting new students with shared interest

"Ever since I joined, I have found a place that truly embodies my goals as a person. I have seen myself grow as not just an advocate, but also as a person in the world."

CCP advocate

"I cannot begin to describe how much HCC means to me – I am so unbelievably glad to be able to be part of this organization. There has been no other experience where volunteers get to be the first point of contact for patients. As a result it feels like something we own, a leadership we all embrace and even feel all that more connected to the people we work with."

CMP advocate

"HCC has single handedly been the most impactful and life changing experience I have been a part of at Hopkins. It's not just about a great volunteering opportunity - it's about the relationships you form with the team and the clients."

HLC advocate

"HCC was by far the most transformative experience of my time at Hopkins."
