InterCommunity

2018 - $20,000

This funding will support InterCommunity, a community health center, as it creates a transitions clinic to provide medical and behavioral health services to people recently released from incarceration, with a focus on those who are over 50 years old or have at least one chronic medical condition. Research indicates that the risk of death spikes in the first two weeks after a person is released from prison. This grant will fund cultural competency training for the clinic’s community health worker and other staff members.
