Janian Medical Care is our award-winning health care program. Established in 2011, Janian delivers a matrix of psychiatric and primary medical care services to homeless and formerly homeless individuals throughout New York City.
Named in the spirit of Janus, the Roman god of transition, change, and new beginnings, Janian is on the forefront of providing compassionate, seamless care to people with complex medical and mental health illnesses.
As the largest provider of psychiatric care to homeless and formerly homeless people in New York City, our Janian psychiatrists are the vanguard of helping people with serious mental health illnesses.
On the streets, in soup kitchens, shelters, housing programs, and in communities throughout the city, we provide person-centered, recovery-oriented psychiatric care that integrates mental health, substance use, and physical health to the most vulnerable New Yorkers.
The Bronx is the northernmost of the five boroughs of New York City. Located north of Manhattan and Queens, and south of Westchester County, the Bronx is the only borough that is located primarily on the mainland.
People all around the world know the Bronx as the home of the New York Yankees, the Bronx Zoo, and the New York Botanical Garden—not to mention as the birthplace of hip-hop. Look deeper and you’ll discover the quaint maritime village of City Island, the cultural attractions of Fordham and Belmont, aka the “real Little Italy,” centered on the restaurants and cafés of Arthur Avenue. Grand Concourse, in the South Bronx, is full of art deco marvels.
Education in the Bronx is provided by a large number of public and private institutions, many of which draw students who live beyond the Bronx. The New York City Department of Education manages public non-charter schools in the borough.
