Project STAY is extending a helping hand.
Young people–especially those at-risk for or living with HIV–need a place where they feel understood by their health care providers and are free to address medical and psychosocial problems without fear of being judged or condemned. They need a medical “home” staffed by a family of health care professionals with specialized training in adolescent care and a passion for delivering cultural- and age-appropriate services to young people. Project STAY incorporates these principles into its mission, and because of it we are proud to be referred to as one of New York City’s best clinical havens for young people. Based in Harlem, Project STAY welcomes youth from the Bronx to Staten Island, providing sensitive and supportive HIV counseling and testing to high-risk youth as well as comprehensive medical, psychosocial and case management services to young people living with HIV.
