Description:

Callen-Lorde Community Health Center provides quality health care and related services primarily to New York's lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender communities regardless of ability to pay. Callen-Lorde promotes health education and wellness and advocates for gay, lesbian, and transgender health issues.

Callen-Lorde's grassroots heritage dates back over 34 years to 1971, to the St. Mark's Community Clinic and the Gay Men's Health Project, two volunteer-based clinics that provided screening and treatment for sexually-transmitted diseases. These clinics merged in 1983 to form Community Health Project (CHP), a mostly volunteer-staffed, episodic care program that housed the country's first community-based HIV clinic. CHP became Callen-Lorde Community Health Center on March 2, 1998, and remains the New York metropolitan area's only health center targeting the needs of the LGBT communities and those living with HIV/AIDS. Its services are vital to LGBT persons, who often face discrimination in the mainstream medical community, and as a result, do not receive adequate or timely medical care.

Callen-Lorde's modern, state-of-the-art health center is located at 356 West 18th Street in Manhattan. It is a 27,000-square foot, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)-compliant, fully licensed, New York State Department of Health Article 28 Diagnostic and Treatment Center. We are the first LGBT agency in the nation to be designated a Federally Qualified Health Center under Section 330(e) of the Public Health Service Act.Callen-Lorde offers primary and specialty medical services, including a continuum of HIV/AIDS care; mental health services; case management; a health education resource center (HERC); and HOTT (Health Outreach To Teens), New York State's only comprehensive program for the health and mental health care of LGBT, homeless and other street youth. Callen-Lorde's services are provided to all, regardless of ability to pay, in a sensitive, caring, and nonjudgmental environment.

Callen-Lorde provides screening and treatment for hepatitis A, B, and C, and hepatitis A and B immunization.

For individuals without coverage from insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid, Callen-Lorde offers a sliding-scale fee structure based on income and family size.
