A Letter from OASAS in Response to Our Email to Gov. Cuomo

The Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) recently sent us a letter in response to our concerns about the proposed facility for mental health and substance abuse services.

The Office of Alcohol and Substance Abuse Services (OASAS) recently sent us a letter in response to our concerns about the proposed facility for mental health and substance abuse services on West 124th Street, between Lenox Ave and Adam Clayton Powell Ave.

We encourage our supporters to read the letter attached and help us to find ways to decrease the number that are concentrated in Harlem. These concentration of services include substance abuse facilities, homeless shelters and halfway houses, and mental health facilities.

Greater Harlem Coalition supports the need for easy access of all of these services to New Yorkers, but feel it is time to share these services and distribute them evenly across the city and state.
