The Coming Home Program of the Center for Comprehensive Care, St. Lukes-Roosevelt Hospital Center in New York City, provides continuity of care for people returning from incarceration to NYC with chronic care conditions through reaching out to them in prisons, jails and half-way houses and through collaboration with CBO's who work with people with criminal justice involvement. Engagement and retention in medical care are encouraged through: full integration in a medical home, a one-stop-stop clinic provided to all the clinic patients; provision of targeted services that address psycho-social needs of people returning home from prison; and a particular role for formerly incarcerated staff and peers who educate all providers as to the particular needs of people with a history of criminal justice involvement and who work directly with the patients.
