Harlem United Community AIDS Center is a non-profit AIDS Service Organization in New York City, providing access to quality healthcare, HIV prevention and education, housing and support services to Harlem's diverse community. In 1988, at the height of the initial wave of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, two men and a Jesuit priest founded Upper Room AIDS Ministry in response to the community's cries for help. By 1995, the organization was renamed Harlem United Community AIDS Center, Inc. to reflect the non-sectarian nature of its services.
Part of the community-based movement to care for people living with HIV/AIDS the organization was created to address the lack of response from established providers to the unique personal, social and institutional barriers to care in the community. Specifically serving people living with HIV/AIDS who were homeless and/or suffered from mental illness, substance use, or social stigma related to their sexuality or HIV status, Harlem United became the last resort for medically-underserved communities of color in Harlem.
