Transitions Clinic Program

The Transitions Clinic Program:

The Transitions Clinic Program provides a patient-centered primary care medical home for chronically-ill returning prisoners. Each program, designed in partnership with formerly incarcerated individuals, is based within safety-net community health centers in neighborhoods most impacted by incarceration.

Each Transitions Clinic Program provides:

  • Linkages with correctional partners to provide continuity of care
  • Easy access to comprehensive primary care
  • Culturally competent, patient-centered medical services
  • Community health workers with a history of incarceration as part of an integrated medical team
  • Close partnerships with local reentry organizations to address social determinants of health
