Welcome to HEAT

Removing Health Barriers for Teens

HEAT's mission is to focus on the special needs of youth ages 13-24 who are HIV+ or at risk for infection, and to remove the barriers which youth often face while accessing health care services.

About Us

Set in a youth-friendly atmosphere, the HEAT program operates a ‘one-stop shopping’ full service clinic and removes the barriers which youth often face while accessing health care services. The HEAT program was founded in 1991, making it the first of its kind in Brooklyn and therefore the most experienced.
