Description:

Health Outreach To Teens is a welcoming, non-judgmental, confidential program designed specifically to meet the medical and mental health needs of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning adolescents and young adults ages 13-24, as well as homeless youth, runaways, sex workers, squatters, and other street-oriented youth. These services are offered both at a youth-only medical suite at Callen-Lorde, and on HOTT's medical van, which travels to areas throughout Manhattan in the afternoons and evenings where youth are known to hang out.

All of HOTT's services are provided free of charge or at low cost (insurance is accepted). HOTT will register young people 21 years old and younger for health care services, and provide ongoing care up to their 24th birthday. After their 24th birthday, they will be transitioned into adult care.
