Harlem United is a community health center built just for you

Our mission is to provide 100% access to quality HIV/AIDS care for all our clients, regardless of race, socio-economic status, or sexual orientation;

To ensure that each of our clients remains connected to treatment and obtains the best possible health outcomes;

To provide quality HIV prevention, housing, and care services in a safe and nurturing environment;

To unite Harlem’s diverse communities and address the needs of all people living with and threatened by HIV/AIDS;

To empower our clients physically, emotionally, socially, and spiritually.


Whatever you need, we’ve got you covered

When the AIDS crisis was exploding in New York City and agencies were turning away those with the most need, Harlem United was founded by a group of people who believed we are in this together.

In the decades since, Harlem United has grown into a full-fledged community health center. Our founding ethic remains the same, though: Harlem United is a family and no matter what, we’re here to help.

We offer a range of services to provide exactly what you need to get and stay healthy:

  • Primary care doctors
  • Dentists
  • Individual & family counseling
  • HIV & STI testing and prevention education
  • Sexual health counseling
  • LGBT support groups
  • Care coordination

Our beginnings as a health center for underserved communities continues today

Low-income people living with HIV can take advantage of our Adult Day Health Care Centers which provide a place to go during the day, individual counseling, group sessions, job training, hot meals, peer support and more.
