Lucille Bulger Center for Community Life
In 2012, we built the Lucille Bulger Center for Community Life (LBC) to be a local hub for Washington Heights residents to access the services, programming and support they need to build a strong, healthy community.
Located at 504 W. 158th St. through 511 W. 157 St., LBC is a multifaceted institution uniting health, education, and social services under one roof, housing a 6th-12th grade public community school, a health clinic, and CLOTH offices.
The LBC is dedicated to improving the quality of life for all residents of Washington Heights. Through the sharing of space and the cultivation of the “it take a village” culture, we increase coordination among leadership and communication between residents and their providers to remove traditional barriers and achieve better outcomes.

Community Health Academy of the Heights (C.H.A.H.)
The proverb “It takes a village to raise a child” rings only half true here at Community Health Academy of the Heights. Like the proverb, we believe the health of the community is fundamentally important to the health of the individual. By forging strong relationships with local community organizations like CLOTH, New York Presbyterian Hospital, and Columbia University Medical Center, our students are offered unique opportunities to act as meaningful change agents in their neighborhood.
Our teachers work collaboratively to identify student needs and prepare them for college and ensure that they are equipped to think critically about and productively serve their community. The village raises the child, to be sure. But we believe that the child should be encouraged to, in turn, raise their village.

Our mission is to provide access to quality, culturally-competent and comprehensive community-based primary care, mental health and social services for diverse populations in underserved communities throughout New York City. We are deeply committed to the communities we serve, and strive to increase accessibility to care, while empowering our patients to take control of their health.
