The NYC Health Department's Neighborhood Health Action Centers in Brownsville, East Harlem, and Tremont provide a variety of resources and programs to serve residents’ health needs.
These neighborhood assets bring together health care providers, New York City agencies, and community-based organizations and programs under one roof. The Action Centers make connecting to programs and services more efficient by providing a one-stop shop for community residents. They also provide community groups with space for community organizing and planning.
You can go to an Action Center for:
Primary care, mental health care and, in some cases, dental care
Referrals to a network of neighborhood resources
Health and wellness classes, workshops and activities
Community space for individuals and groups to work and coordinate strategies that advance neighborhood health
