Why Do We Need Your Support This Season?

Well, we are on the path to taking a really incredible step forward in our mission to serve our communities. As you may know, we are opening a new health center in Jackson Heights! This project has been an amazing journey and each step the Apicha CHC community has showed up to support our dream.

Apicha CHC's new location will house our new LGBTQ+ Community Center. At the center we will have a plethora of community services, activities and events available! From sexual health education to community meeting addressing relevant issues, we will have a welcoming and inclusive space! 

We are trying to raise 20,000 dollars for electronics and furniture for the space, so every single penny counts.

What is AmazonSmile?

It’s this really easy way for you to support Apicha CHC when you shop at Amazon, at no extra cost to you! When you shop with smile.amazon.com you can do tons of holiday shopping while continuing to support the health of your community.
