Addressing Health Inequities in Queensbridge

Welcome to the Queensbridge Health Advocacy Partners Program (HAPP) – an initiative by Community Mediation Services aimed at tackling health inequities within the NYCHA Queensbridge residences. Our goal is to empower residents with the tools and support they need to achieve their health goals and improve overall well-being.

Our Mission

HAPP is dedicated to creating a healthier community by addressing the unique health challenges faced by NYCHA Queensbridge residents. By working closely with the community, we strive to provide personalized support and resources that promote wellness, prevent illness, and manage chronic diseases.

Program Highlights

Community Health Workers (CHWs): Our trained CHWs play a pivotal role in the success of HAPP. They provide residents with essential health education, personalized support, and access to a variety of resources. CHWs serve as trusted health advocates, helping residents navigate the healthcare system and connect with necessary services.

Health Education: We offer workshops and educational sessions on a wide range of health topics, including nutrition, exercise, mental health, and chronic disease management. These sessions are designed to empower residents with the knowledge they need to make informed health decisions.

Access to Resources: Through our partnerships with local healthcare providers and organizations, we ensure that residents have access to vital health services and resources. Whether it’s connecting with primary care physicians, obtaining necessary medications, or accessing mental health support, we are here to help.

Preventive Care: Prevention is a key focus of HAPP. We encourage regular health screenings, vaccinations, and lifestyle changes that promote long-term health and well-being.

Success Stories

HAPP has already made a significant impact in the Queensbridge community. Here are a few stories from residents who have benefited from our program:

  • Maria’s Journey: After attending our nutrition workshops, Maria made changes to her family’s diet that resulted in improved health and energy levels for everyone.
  • John’s Transformation: With the support of our CHWs, John successfully managed his diabetes and learned to make healthier lifestyle choices.
