LGBT Services

If you are LGBT, we understand your health care needs. CHN is a safe space for you to come and get quality health care and support. All of our centers will offer you a welcoming environment. You will never face bias, discrimination or ignorance. Here are the programs we offer to you at CHN:

Transgender Family Program
CHN’s Transgender Family Program was founded in 2004 after we saw a lack of HIV services in the transgender community. CHN’s Transgender Program offers three programs for people of transgender experience.

The Transgender Family Program is open to all transgender people, no matter what their HIV status is. The program offers:

  • Primary (basic) health care
  • Preventive health services
  • Weekly workshops with presentations by staff and invited guests
  • Support group meetings
  • Counseling by licensed mental health therapist
  • HIV counseling and testing
  • Referrals for gender reassignment surgery
  • Financial assistance for Hormones ( CABS Health Center)
  • PrEP ( Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis) and PEP (Post-Exposure Prophylaxis) Services

Come to one of our weekly workshops (offered in both English and Spanish)! The program is held at our Bronx Health Center, our CABS Health Center and our Family Health Center. Call us today to learn more at 646-483-3977 or email us at [email protected].
