OUR MISSION

Project HELP is a non-profit community-based addiction prevention program whose mission is to participate in and help build our community by preventing substance use and addiction. Alcohol and drug use, smoking, gambling, and other unhealthy addictive behaviors have a tremendous negative impact on everyone in the community affecting rich and poor, young and old, and reaching across all racial, ethnic, social, and religious groups. We believe that mental and physical well-being is the key to preventing all forms of addiction and thus we take a holistic approach, educating the community about the root causes of addiction while at the same time teaching and promoting positive, healthy coping strategies. We are committed to collaborating and partnering with organizations and groups throughout lower Manhattan. Whether educating children and teens, parents, service providers, or older adults, we strive to impart useful, practical information that will help the members of our community live better, healthier lives.

 

WHO WE ARE

Project HELP is a non-profit substance abuse prevention program licensed by the New York State Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS). We are a non-religious grant-funded organization and thus are able to provide all of our services and programs free of charge to our partners. We pride ourselves on providing high quality educational workshops, newsletters, printed materials, and much more all related to the issues of addiction and substance use/abuse.

We are one of the many programs of the Educational Alliance (www.edalliance.org), serving as the Alliance's official addiction prevention education program. We strategically interface with many Alliance programs and sites to serve our community.

For over 15 years, Project HELP has provided addiction prevention education to the residents of lower Manhattan. We are deeply invested and involved in our community, collaborating and partnering with local schools, community centers, senior centers, faith groups, and adult residential facilities to educate and raise awareness.

We are proud to have the Metlife Foundation, the UJA Federation, and the Lucius N. Littauer Foundation as our loyal supporters.
