Redefining Support for LGBTQ+ New Yorkers

At The Center, our case management team plays a crucial role in supporting LGBTQ+ New Yorkers as they navigate life's trials and tribulations. The team will conduct an initial assessment to understand your unique circumstances, challenges, and goals.

They will work with you to identify your specific needs and develop a personalized action plan. There are four case managers with specific areas of expertise: Immigration, TGNC Gender Affirming Care, Public Benefits & Housing Support. Our team works with community members to create an action plan.

The moment I walked into The Center for its recovery program, everyone in the building accepted me for who I was. They treated me with dignity and respect, and most importantly, showed me and others so much empathy and kindness. I finally had made a soft landing, and it was within my community!
