Mission Statement

The mission of Harlem United Community AIDS Center 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.

Description

Harlem United is a community-based organization providing a unique continuum of care.

We integrate socially and economically disenfranchised people into a healthy and healing community. We also offer our clients access to a full range of medical, social, and supportive services. The majority of our clients are people living with HIV/AIDS whose diagnoses are often complicated by addiction, mental illness, and homelessness. Many have also faced significant barriers to care due to poverty, race, HIV status, and sexual or gender identity.

Our "one-stop shop" for services allows Harlem United to treat the whole person--mind, body, and spirit--in a compassionate and supportive environment. Our staff work in partnership with our clients at each stage of care: HIV testing; treatment and education; primary medical care; substance use counseling; mental health services; pastoral counseling; and an array of expressive therapies. Through our comprehensive model of care, clients learn to become their own advocates and acquire a new sense of well-being and independence.
