About Chase Shiflet, MSW
Chase Shiflet, MSW, has been with the IHN since November of 2021 and serves as the Justice Initiative Program Manager, supervising the RE-LINK Program. The program is currently based out of St. Louis County jail and seeks to pair people leaving regional jails with a team of Community Health Workers that facilitate connections to resources which address a client’s social determinants of health. Chase has a Bachelor of Arts degree in English Literature and Creative Writing from Florida State University and a Master of Social Work degree from the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis. His interests lie in envisioning alternatives to systems of punishment and mitigating the effects that collateral consequences have on people leaving jail and prison. He is a member of the Strategic Advisory Committee at the IHN and facilitates the Health and Social Service Network, a coalition of regional organizations that work with justice-involved populations. In his spare time, Chase sits on the Gravois-Jefferson Development Review Committee and serves on the Government Relations Subcommittee. Chase is proud to be a part of the IHN because of the organization’s stated commitment to ensuring that St. Louis’ most vulnerable residents have access to quality care in their communities, regardless of their individual circumstances.
