Washington Heights CORNER Project

Washington Heights CORNER Project’s (WHCP) mission is to significantly improve the health and quality of life of people who use drugs. To help overcome stigma and systemic barriers to care, we provide support and services in an empowering and non- judgmental environment and apply a participant-driven harm reduction approach. We expand access to clean syringes through street-based outreach, and provide resources, advocacy, and a broad range of educational, health and referral services that reduce risks associated with drug use, including HIV, viral hepatitis and overdose.

WHCP is located on the 2nd Floor of 566 West 181st Street which is located on the SE corner of St. Nicholas Avenue in Washington Heights.
