Why Join?

CTHE members are CBOs working within some of NYC’s most disenfranchised and underserved communities. CTHE members provide culturally tailored services that are located at priority sites, at times and locations that are convenient for those who have the highest risks, present the greatest needs, and are the hardest to reach.  

 Many of the CBOs within the CTHE network are supporting community needs who have learned from decades of institutionalized and systemic policies of exclusion not to trust the system and delivering services in a variety of community based locations in addition to their formal business locations, including barbershops/beauty salons, schools, food pantries and benefits offices, primary care and other service provider locations.  

These CBOs are intertwined within the communities they serve, often responding to targeted needs or community hotspots.The CBOs within the CTHE network are trusted entities in communities and many are the trusted sources of support where residents go for assistance.  

 As a Consortium, the network brings extensive community roots with the ability to reach into communities to locate and involve residents who should be connected to health care services, including those related to DSRIP. Therefore, information and support available from these CBOs is critical within the communities in which they are located and can be leveraged by the delivery system to identify and connect with hard to reach community residents.


Join the Health Equity Movement! 

CTHE has a collective interest to ensure meaningful community engagement within the healthcare delivery system transformation process. To ensure that local needs and capacity are identified and local voices are heard, participation in the CTHE coalition provides an opportunity for CBOs to have a collective voice, network and infrastructure necessary to plan for and engage with a transforming healthcare environment to address issues and the Social Determinants of Health (SDoH).
