    Insurance Enrollment

    On October 1, 2013, the Affordable Care Act went into effect in New York State, offering insurance options at a range of levels and costs. Interest in the program, called NY State of Health: The Official Health Plan Marketplace, has been high, and we want you to know that you don’t have to figure out which option is best for you and your family on your own. The Center is a designated navigator for the NY State of Health, the health insurance options available through the Affordable Care Act. We provide information and education on the options, and help individuals, families, small businesses and their employees enroll into the program. Our professional staff is here to help you figure out what plan is right for you, what you can afford and how to complete enrollment. The Center is proud to offer this free service as another step that we’re taking to ensure that everyone in the LGBT community has the tools to live happy and healthy lives. Call 646.556.9300 or email enroll@gaycenter.org today to set up an appointment.

    Professional Training

    Professional Training

    For clinicians who practice in a city as diverse as New York, access to culturally sensitive training resources is essential.

    The Center has been providing technical assistance to community-based organizations, service providers and government providers locally, regionally and nationally in a variety of disciplines since our inception in the 1980s. The Center Training Institute offers specialized training sessions and technical assistance for professionals who work with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) people in the New York City area. Our workshops have been carefully developed to offer important information, resources and creative clinical skills to help you enhance the lives of your LGBT clients.

    The Center is a New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) approved provider of Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

    The Center Training Institute offers two onsite series of trainings each year in fall and spring. All trainings require a $20 registration fee for students and $60 for professionals. To register or for more information, contact Katharine Kelley at kkelley@gaycenter.org.

    In addition to the onsite Center Training Institute, in some instances workshops can be offered offsite to government, medical, educational, substance abuse recovery and social service providers, as well as at conferences, forums and training institutes.
