OLA Works for a Healthy East End

All community members deserve to enjoy excellent physical and mental health. By helping people navigate health care systems, taking them to medical appointments, and creating better access to health and mental health services, we are working toward a stronger, healthier East End.

COVID-Related Services

Since the COVID-19 pandemic began in 2020, we have provided a variety of pandemic-related services, including setting up a mobile testing site early in the pandemic, operating numerous vaccination sites throughout the East End, educating community members about vaccine safety, and distributing COVID test kits.

 

If you have not yet been vaccinated and would like to learn more, please contact us.

Health Care Access

Health equity starts with health care access. Lack of interpretation and translation services, health insurance, and transportation are just some of the obstacles community members experience when trying to access health care on the East End.

 

OLA offers support and follow-
up in these areas to ensure your health care needs are met.

Medical Transportation Program

OLA staff and volunteers provide medical transportation to and from cancer treatments, pediatric visits, OB-GYN visits, and other critical health and mental health appointments.

 

We also provide interpretation at doctors’ offices whenever possible as well as assist you with follow-up calls and appointments. 

Comforting Hands

Mental/Emotional Health Care

If you are struggling to cope with the pandemic or life’s other pressures, you are not alone. OLA’s Project Hope crisis counselors are here to help.

 

Please call or text (631) 500-0837 for help in Spanish or English.

 

OLA also links adolescents and their families to mental health care providers and works to make sure that young people do not fall through the cracks that often characterize mental health care service delivery and prevent young people from receiving the help they need.
