Harlem United is a community-based organization providing a unique continuum of care. We integrate socially and economically disenfranchised people into a healthy and healing community. We also offer our clients access to a full range of medical, social, and supportive services. The majority of our clients are people living with HIV/AIDS whose diagnoses are often complicated by addiction, mental illness, and homelessness. Many have also faced significant barriers to care due to poverty, race, HIV status, sexual orientation or gender identity.

Our “one-stop shop” for services allows Harlem United to treat the whole person—mind, body, and spirit—in a compassionate and supportive environment. Our staff work in partnership with our clients at each stage of care: HIV testing; treatment and education; primary medical care; substance use counseling; mental health services; pastoral counseling; and an array of expressive therapies. Through our comprehensive model of care, clients learn to become their own advocates and acquire a new sense of well-being and independence.

Harlem United is the parent company of several subsidiaries including:

  • The Upper Room AIDS Ministry, Inc. - the healthcare division of the agency including Primary Care and Holistic Community Healthcare.
  • The Foundation for Research on Sexually Transmitted Diseases, Inc.(FROST’D) – A partnership with the Foundation for Research on Sexually Transmitted Disease (FROST’D) was formed in July, 2007 in a strategic move to advance and develop a full continuum of prevention, housing and care services. For more information about FROST’D please visit www.frostd.org.
