Women's Health

We are whole-heartily thrilled about our partnership with Restore NYC, which was launched in January 2018, providing medical services to their clients on dedicated Thursdays from 12:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
We provide sensitive, culturally appropriate, holistic, patient-centered primary and basic GYN healthcare for women who have experienced trauma, exploitation, and/or violence. This includes those who have experienced sex trafficking, sexual assault, labor trafficking, and/or domestic violence. Our services are free regardless of insurance status, immigration status or ability to pay.
Our appointments are intentionally scheduled for 60 minute time frames allowing the patient to go at her own pace in discussing her health concerns and/or any traumatic experiences. We want to ensure each woman is provided comfortable examination leading to a trustworthy and safe healthcare partnership with providers and staff. In addition to Medical/Gyn consultations and exams we provide in house lab testing, discounted prescriptions and discounted radiological services.
Our volunteer all-female staff are trauma-informed and continue to seek ways to better serve this community of survivors.  
We welcome the opportunity to work with other service providers and organizations. Please contact us if you or your organization are interested in partnering.

What we are unable to offer: Minor or Major Surgery

Q: Must I make an appointment?
A: We do take walk-ins on a first-come, first-served basis. However, if you can make an appointment in advance, this will help us serve you. NLCHC has a patient ‘portal’ via website where you can provide some basic patient information ahead of your visit. You can also receive your regular and ongoing medical information via the ‘portal’ once you are fully registered as a patient. The patient portal site is https://15450.portal.athenahealth.com
Q: How much does it cost?
A: All of our services are FREE for you.

Q: Who is providing the medical care?
A: We have a team of health care professionals who have experience and training in working with victims of domestic violence, sexual abuse and human trafficking.
Shantae Rodriguez, PA, is the leader of NLCHC’s outreach program for survivors of domestic violence, sexual abuse and human trafficking. A childhood victim of poverty, Shantae understands many of the difficulties facing people in recovery and restoration. Having served victims/ survivors of trauma both nationally and internationally she has comprehensive experience in trauma related services.
