Open Air Care Connections

Speak with trained Community Health Workers at LeFrak Center at Lakeside in Prospect Park! Prospect Park Alliance and the the NYC Health Department have launched Open Air Care Connections, a pilot program which seeks to remove the stigma around mental healthcare through community health outreach, events and educational programs. Through the pilot, community health workers provided by Neighborhood Housing Services of Brooklyn, will be placed at key locations in the park and embedded into Alliance events and public programs to address mental health needs of our community.

Engage with Community Health Workers to assess social needs and receive direct referrals to find support for emotional health, substance use, physical health, housing, career, education and food-access concerns.
