Communities for Health

MISSION

Our mission is to prevent HIV/STIs, underage drinking, and substance use through community prevention education, harm reduction resources, and referrals to social/health services to ensure safer cities and healthier futures for Bronx youth ages 13-24.

VISION

By addressing historical health injustices for Black and Latinx Bronx communities, we envision breaking barriers of health disparities for the upcoming generation of changemakers so that they are empowered to change the narrative of their lives.
