Reaching Across the Island
Project Safety Net NY is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit community based agency delivering a broad range of health, education and prevention services to Long Islanders who need them most. Our intervention staff use a field-based mobile outreach model to connect with individuals who are stranded, with groups who are cut-off, and with communities that feel invisible. We believe in progressive public policy and we advocate for quality, inclusion and opportunity for all.
Our Mission is Broad
The mission of Project Safety Net NY is to promote health, safety and achievement for the diverse and underrepresented communities of Long Island. Our programs and services have a particular focus on substance abuse and mental health, LGBTQ+, communities of color, at-risk youth, and people living with chronic health conditions.
Our Methods are Local
Successful interventions for Long Island’s high-risk populations require island-wide outreach and a multidisciplinary approach to prevention and care coordination. A local understanding of communities in context informs our program design and client services. Consumer input, clinical supervision, and continuous quality improvement shape our process.
