The Office of Health and Wellness Strategies (HWS) was established to combat health disparities such as HIV, diabetes, and immunization coverage. HWS exists to improve the holistic wellness of the Harlem community and provides the most comprehensive and diversified spectrum of care possible through education, support services, referrals and partnerships.


HWS attempts to positively affect individual attitudes and norms by utilizing the institutions that community members already trust, namely congregations of faith-based groups and houses of worship. HCCI works with these institutions to deliver an inspirational, motivational message that promotes the importance of wellness and affirms behavior that leads to wellness.
