Mission Statement

The Washington Heights CORNER Project was
founded in November 2005 as a volunteer endeavor
rooted in harm reduction and aimed towards
reducing the high-risk practices of the Washington
Heights drug using community. We seek to
accomplish this objective by addressing the lack of
syringe access and harm reduction resources in a
neighborhood that is 12% higher than New York
City as a whole in terms of high-risk sexual and
injection drug use practices. CORNER seeks to
decimate the transmission of blood-born disease
and infections, infection-related medical problems,
and related transmission to drug using associates,
family members, sexual partners, and sexual
employers.

Description

WHCP is a street and office-based harm reduction agency. We provide syringe exchange, HIV and HCV-prevention education, overdose prevention, HIV and HCV testing, case management, and a wide variety of referrals and resources.
