Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update
Pillars Community Health employs more than 300 staff across 10 locations and in community settings.

Our staff provide assessments, preventive services, and best-practice, research-based interventions and curricula with the goals of creating stability, building skills, and encouraging self-sufficiency. If you are interested in and qualified for any of our open positions, we encourage you to apply.

Note: Many of our job openings require bilingual counseling skills in both English and Spanish, and may also require special licenses. Please be sure to read the requirements carefully to make sure you are qualified. Both clinical and non-clinical positions are available. For those who are interested in temporary employment, we will continue to hire for any open positions in Early Childhood Education through Spring 2020, in order to maintain these services until the program closes on June 30, 2020.
Pillars Community Health has a long, well-known history of commitment to student training. All of our internships require that the applicant be enrolled in an educational program that aligns with the internship.
Our culture is one of community, with clinical/teaching staff, leadership, and administrative professionals working together to find the best solutions for individuals and families. At the heart of our work is the desire to heal, care, and educate; to stand as strong as pillars on behalf of every person who is reaching for a better future; to influence the whole health of the people we serve and bring about a healthier community. We believe we have a responsibility to tackle the issues facing our communities, from diabetes and opioid abuse to mental illness, violence, and access to affordable child care, and more.
In addition, we share a common vision of giving all people equal access to the care they need, when they need it. Staff share a common belief that our differences are assets. We welcome clients regardless of their class/socioeconomic status, culture, race, color, religion, sex, gender identity, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, age, disability/ability, marital status, sexual orientation, genetic information, military and veteran status or history, arrest record, or status as being under and order of protection.
Our organization’s history can be traced back to 1921 in La Grange and 1928 in Berwyn. We are known for innovating to meet best practices. With nearly 100 years of history behind us, we believe we have a responsibility—in this moment—to honor the supporters and staff who have gone before us and to use our time with the organization to improve the health and safety of the communities we serve.
The Power of One
At a time when there are many societal issues bubbling to the surface – spiking rates of suicide, vast reports of sexual assault, the opioid epidemic, high costs of health care and child care, and so on--it can feel overwhelming. You may wonder: What can I do? To that, we answer: Remember the power of ONE. Change starts with one person or one organization deciding to do something for someone else.
