Support a Health Center with Heart!

A few months into the Brooklyn chapter, I was asked to join a collective of health practitioners at Third Root Community Health Center.

One of the biggest motivators for coming back to the States was to find a community – because as much as I loved my compadres in the world of teaching abroad, we were all relatively nomadic.  A wonderful life!  But the big 33 seems to beckon for more stable ground…

Cue Third Root.  The center provides a community connection that can feel all-too-rare in the frenetic New York landscape.  Welcoming, inclusive and sensitive to the needs of marginalized communities, the center holds a special place in the heart of Brooklyn.

At the center of NY’s largest Haitian community, joined by Tibetan, Pakistani, Hassidic Jew and Mexican pockets. And trees. Lots of pretty trees :o)

We’re raising funds for this fabulous space.  If you’re interested in contributing,please visit our First Giving page.

 

From our newly launched website:

We strive to be Accessible, Empowering, and Collaborative

Accessible

We offer sliding scale fees, a staff trained in anti-oppression, and a clinic
that is building bridges within a community.

Collaborative

Practitioners from various modalities work together toward a client’s optimum
health. We have a vast referral network for practices or specialized care
outside of our scope of practice. We work with local and national social
justice organizations to build healthy communities from the outside in and
the inside out.

Empowering

Third Root is a place where people learn to make informed choices about
self-care and learn how to better care for themselves through the healing
they receive at Third Root. We offer health education workshops, a 3-tiered
Herbal Education Program, herb walks, and a resource library

Supporting Third Root allows our educators, therapists and practitioners to continue on a mission of holistic health through social justice.
