Center for Health Justice empowers individuals affected by incarceration to make healthier choices by delivering programs and services that act as a bridge to a productive life. We at Center For Health Justice value: Diversity, Quality, Commitment to Clients, Teamwork, Social Justice, and Evidence-Based Practices. 

CHJ is a mission driven organization focused on serving incarcerated individuals and their families who are at high-risk for many serious health conditions; these individuals are also at a disadvantage in accessing quality medical care and support services that help them successfully reintegrate back into the community. CHJ established three strategic goals to support its purpose and implement its vision through 2015. 

1) Create and strengthen collaborations with other organizations that have expertise and resources that complement CHJ's, and leverage those partnerships not to duplicate services, but to meet the complex needs of our clients.

2) Expand CHJ's capacity to effectively and consistently communicate with others outside of the organization.

 

3) Create long-term organizational sustainability, both programmatically, and fiscally.


As the result of a recent County Health Department audit (2013-14), it was discovered that 4 CHJ client files were missing. A subsequent CHJ internal audit discovered an additional 10 client files to be missing. All 14 files were generated by the same CHJ staff. Information about clients’ health condition, risk behaviors, personal identification, and contact information were possibly included in the lost files. It is possible that personal information may be disclosed to others as a result of this breach. CHJ takes this breach very seriously, and following HIPAA guidelines, is notifying the CHJ Community accordingly. CHJ has developed a 16 page data management policy to ensure that this breach does not reoccur (a copy is available upon request and posted on our website for 90 days).
