About the Organization
Community Healthcare Network (CHN) is a not-for-profit organization that provides access to quality, culturally competent and comprehensive community-based primary care, mental health care and social services for diverse populations in underserved communities throughout New York City. We reach over 75,000 individuals each year in Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn and the Bronx. Our health centers serve neighborhoods that are incredibly diverse. More than 96% of CHNs patients are people of color, with 46% identifying as African-American/Caribbean, 49% as Hispanic, and 1% as Asian-American. A large number of our patients are immigrants and the working poor. Approximately 29% of CHNs patients are best served in a language other than English. Over a third of CHNs patients are uninsured and over 75% have incomes below the federal poverty level.
