Access to Health Care in Federal Prisons
The project focuses on advocacy around delivery and access to physical and mental health services in two federal prisons. The work includes research, outreach, and advocacy on behalf of prisoners with serious mental illness held in a federal "supermax" facility but denied appropriate services, and on behalf of all prisoners at a privately owned federal contract facility with limited access to medical services.
The Foundation's grant-making program is centered on the concepts of health and well-being. The Foundation's purpose is to promote and support effective and creative programs, practices and policies related to healing from illness, accident, physical, social or emotional trauma, and to extend the availability of programs that promote healing to underserved populations.
