Current Partners

Health People maintains strong collaborations

with a broad range of health care and community partners who share our commitment to help address health inequalities and to empower high-need, low-income populations in the South Bronx through effective health management and self-care. This combined effort strengthens our ability to address the ongoing health and social needs of this underserved community.

Mobilizing partners and resources to connect the chronically ill to necessary services and care.

Community Partners

Health People’s deep community roots and long linkages to many local organizations and sites enable us to target services to a range of high-need populations.

Health People has implemented various services on site at more than 60 local organizations and agencies, from SROs and homeless shelters to public housing developments — and from senior citizen centers to community colleges.

We are a participating member of the Bronx Re-Entry Working Group, the Mentoring Partnership of NYC, and the Bronx HIV Advocacy Network, among other organizations. Health People recently reinvigorated the 718 AIDS and More Coalition, dedicated to insuring a fair apportionment of Federal AIDS and other health funds to the Bronx.

Healthcare Partners

Health People has worked on joint projects with leading health institutions, including the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Montefiore Medical Center, the Bronx Community Health Network, Bronx Lebanon Hospital Center, Lincoln Hospital, Jacobi Medical Center, and the Visiting Nurse Service of New York.

Health People was lead agency for the NY State funded South Bronx Diabetes Coalition, a vital community-wide health coalition comprised of more than 40 community agencies, as well as the Center for Community Education for the New York City Childhood Asthma Coalition.

Health People is a member of Bronx BREATHES, The NYS Health Department Bronx tobacco control program run by Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and also Bronx CREED run by The Einstein Center to Reduce and Eliminate Health Disparities.
