Welcome to the

Community Medicine Program—Family Health Centers at NYU Langone

We offer access to medical care to people who are experiencing housing issues, transitional living, or homelessness.

The Community Medicine Program—Family Health Centers at NYU Langone provides healthcare to adults through several New York City homeless services locations.

Our program reaches people who otherwise would have limited access to healthcare. We provide primary and urgent care as well as vaccinations, women’s health services, dental care, and health education. We also offer behavioral health services including psychotherapy and psychiatric evaluation.

In addition to our primary care services, we can connect our patients with doctors from more than 25 medical and surgical specialties.

Treatment for substance use is available to residents of the shelter system and those who are formerly homeless and living in the city’s supportive housing. Services include group therapy, supportive therapy, and medication. We also provide referrals and navigation services to help people enter detox programs and addiction rehabilitation.

Our care team includes doctors, psychiatrists, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, psychiatric nurses, social workers, HIV counselors, care managers, and substance abuse counselors.
