Health and Education Alternatives for Teens (HEAT) is a unique program that focuses on the special needs of teenagers that are HIV infected or at risk. All of our services are confidential and comprehensive. Set in a youth-friendly atmosphere, the HEAT program operates a ‘one-stop shopping ’ full service clinic and removes the barriers which youth often face while accessing health care services. The HEAT program was founded in 1991, making it the first of its kind in Brooklyn and therefore the most experienced.HEAT also serves a leadership role in strengthening the network of youth-oriented providers in the metropolitan area and heightening public awareness about the impact of the HIV/AIDS epidemic on adolescents. We are committed to providing age-appropriate and culturally competent care for all youths —straight, gay, bisexual, transgender, gender non-conforming, from all ethnic backgrounds.
