Outreach & Education

Overview

NYHRE goes where the need is greatest! Our Peers, many of whom are current or former substance users or sex workers, canvass East Harlem and Bronx neighborhoods, providing anonymous health education information through informal conversations. They offer community residents information on available services and often accompany participants to NYHRE’s SEP sites so they feel more comfortable and supported.
