Review for CENTER FOR HEALTH JUSTICE , Los Angeles, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

CHJ is a unique and innovative organization. Its programs include both health education inside jails and prisons, transition programs as a prisoner reenters society, and advocacy work on behalf of prisoner health. The organization is very collaborative, in particular with reentry programs. CHJ spends a very high percentage of funds on programs, and very little on fundraising and overhead. The offices were moved in March, 2011 to a block from Los Angeles County jail, to better serve the clients. It was able to open a center where recently released prisoners can enhance their reentry. The organization does cutting edge programs and has been asked to share what it does at conferences and other prisoner support organizations.
