Mission & Purpose

Our mission is to empower community members upon their return from incarceration to become self-sufficient and to reach their health and wellness goals.

We connect people with needed health services and assist them with all aspects of re-entry; including housing, job training, legal needs, education, transportation, and life skills.

Benefits & Details

Who is Eligible?

An individual who:

  • Has been released from incarceration within the last 24 months (some exceptions can be made)
  • Is a willing participant
  • Is 18 years or older
  • Has not been seen by a physician in over a year
  • Has a chronic disease (i.e. high blood pressure, diabetes, liver disease, lung disease, kidney disease, heart disease, mental health or substance use disorders)

Cost Assistance

Individuals who have recently been released from incarceration may not qualify for Medicaid and have limited options for health insurance. The NC-FIT Program assists patients in identifying options for coverage, and removes barriers to the cost of co-pays and medications.

Provided Services

Our Community Health Workers provide the following services:

  • Health and Social Service navigation
  • Mentorship to continue building autonomy and successfully return to the community after release.
  • A bridge between clinical team and the patient
  • Advocacy on behalf of their communities to key stakeholders and policy makers


The FIT program is a partnership between the following organizations:

  • UNC Family Medicine
  • The North Carolina Department of Public Safety
  • The North Carolina Community Health Center Association
  • Federally Qualified Health Centers (TAPM)
  • County Departments of Public Health
  • Community-based reentry organizations and local reentry councils (GCRC).
“When I got out of prison, I had so many things to think about: finding a job and a place to live and making things right with my family. It was a huge relief knowing I’d get some help transitioning. Thanks to the FIT program, I’m now working full time, managing my diabetes and moving on with my life.”
