Health Connections

At HJAHC, we understand that health involves more than doctor visits.  Our commitment goes beyond just the health visit; we are also here to support your non-medical needs. 

Volunteer Patient Advocates use the PRAPARE screening tool to provide the resources and support needed for the successful management of patients’ health and wellness.  

All patients can receive connections to a range of community resources covering essentials like food, housing, technology, clothing, childcare, utilities, and self-improvement/education.  Health Connections is a pilot program exclusively at our Warren Street location.

Access to Birth Control Without Prescription in New Jersey

Governor Murphy signed legislation that will allow individuals access to various forms of over-the-counter birth control. Starting in May, the new law will permit pharmacists in New Jersey to distribute self-administered oral, transdermal, and vaginal contraceptives without a prescription.

Individuals will also be required to complete an annual questionnaire to evaluate patient risk factors determined by the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The responses will be kept as a medical record.
