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.

COVID-19 Update

Project Safety Net’s top priority is the health of our clients, staff and colleagues. Following Governor Cuomo’s current guidance on social distancing, our testing services, group meetings and in-person gatherings are postponed until further notice. Care Coordination services will be provided remotely. Office hours will shift to accommodate the reduced staff presence. We expect this situation to evolve daily and we will make on-going adjustments to balance our mission and the critical services we provide to the community.

Please see the links on our Covid-19 reference page for resources to help you stay healthy and well during this challenging period.

Long Island will get through this crisis if we unite, stay informed and act with purpose!

INTERVENTION

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.

Public health systems are always changing, leaving gaps in programming and access for many communities across the State. Individuals slip through the cracks every day.

Working directly in communities and in collaboration with other organizations, Project Safety Net NY aims to reduce risk, expand coverage and improve outcomes by knowing where the gaps are and catching people before they fall.
