The Harlem Children’s Health Project

The Harlem Children’s Health Project (HCHP), an innovative comprehensive health resource center that is designed to improve the health of children in Central Harlem, provides health assessments, medical care, oral health services, mental health services, referrals, health education and the Neuberger Berman Health Promotion Learning Lab. The HCHP is a school-based health center that provides medical, dental and mental health services, all under one roof. Next to the patient waiting room, a high-tech computer lab with interactive health education software attracts young people’s interest. HCHP’s comprehensive, on-site clinical and health-education services are available to all students year-round, regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
