Formerly Incarcerated Transition Program of Orange County (F.I.T)
The FIT Program is a partnership between UNC Family Medicine, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety (which administers the state prisons), The North Carolina Community Health Center Association, Federally Qualified Health Centers, County Departments of Public Health, community-based reentry organizations and local reentry councils.
The FIT Program utilizes Community Health Workers (CHWs) with a personal history of incarceration, to connect recently released people with chronic disease, mental illness and/or substance use disorder to appropriate health care services and helps put together a comprehensive reentry plan working with local reentry partners.
The NC FIT Program is based on the Transitions Clinic Network model that has shown improved outcomes for participants. The NC FIT Program is a member of this nationwide network of 25 clinical sites.
