About Us

CCAP Columbia Care Access Project

Columbia University Care Access Project (CCAP) is a student-run organization that strives to increase access to care for all people by providing free medical services, education, and resources to members of the Washington Heights community. CCAP is committed to the harm reduction philosophy, which emphasizes minimizing the negative consequences of high-risk behaviors without judgment. Harm reduction principles have traditionally been employed in addiction management but also apply to safer sex practices and chronic disease care.

CCAP is focused on outreach, street medicine, and community engagement. These efforts include providing food, clothing, hygiene kits, and safe-use supplies to unhoused populations in the Washington Heights neighborhood. In order to meet the needs of our patient population, CCAP aims to provide medical services, including wound care, as well.
