More About Me

About Me

James Kowalsky is an AM Candidate at University of Chicago's School for Social Service Administration. As part of his work towards a degree in Social Work, James is currently interning in a substance use treatment. James volunteers for the Chicago Recovery Alliance and trains people on how to recognize signs of an opioid overdose and administer naloxone. Formerly, James was the Project Coordinator for Heartland Center for Systems Change at Heartland Health Outreach (HHO) in Chicago, IL. In this role, James provided training and support to organizations adapting their practices to incorporate Harm Reduction, Housing First, Motivational Interviewing and Trauma-Informed Care. James spent seven years as an outreach worker with HHO, meeting people experiencing homelessness and linking them to housing, primary and mental health care, and other community-based resources. In that role, he learned the value of using harm reduction and motivational interviewing techniques to connect with the most vulnerable members of our communities.
