For nearly three decades, Harlem United has changed lives by helping marginalized communities improve their health and well-being through compassionate, client-centered care.
From our roots, planted in the basement of a church in Harlem at the height of the AIDS crisis, we’ve grown into a full-fledged, community-based healthcare and housing provider.
Across the decades, our founding ethic has remained the same: Harlem United is a family, and no matter what, we’re here to help.
New York, New York
New York is the most populous city in the United States. A global power city, New York exerts a significant impact upon commerce, finance, media, art, fashion, research, technology, education, and entertainment. The home of the United Nations Headquarters, New York is an important center for international diplomacy and has been described as the cultural capital of the world.
Many districts and landmarks in New York City have become well known to its 50 million annual visitors. Times Square, iconified as "The Crossroads of the World," is the brightly illuminated hub of the Broadway theatre district and a major center of the world's entertainment industry. New York City's financial district, anchored by Wall Street in Lower Manhattan, has been called the world's leading financial center and is home to the New York Stock Exchange.
When people think of New York City, Manhattan is often the first place they picture. It’s no wonder: the borough is home to big-name attractions, such as Central Park, the Empire State Building, St. Patrick’s Cathedral, the High Line and One World Observatory; world-class museums, restaurants and concert halls; and the bright lights of Times Square and Broadway. But there's more to the borough than the obvious sights. Manhattan contains charming neighborhoods and hidden green spaces, trendy boutiques and classic bars.
Harlem has long been synonymous with black culture. In the early 20th century the neighborhood was the setting for African-American-led movements in music, literature, dance, and art—collectively known as the Harlem Renaissance—that featured innovators like Bessie Smith, Langston Hughes, and Josephine Baker. That legacy is still evident today, especially along the area’s main thoroughfare, 125th Street, which is anchored by the Apollo Theater. Other highlights include art at the Studio Museum in Harlem, and stalwart restaurants like Sylvia’s and Amy Ruth’s (which serve soul food par excellence), as well as newer entries like Marcus Samuelsson’s Red Rooster.
