People’s Health Sanctuary (PHS) is a community-led mutual aid health initiative, based in North-Central Troy. PHS is a space for gathering, sharing food, moving your body, working through grief, cultivating a sense of safety, and embodying a culture of care. We know deep in our bones, just as our ancestors did, that our individual and collective health are inseparable.
Our theory of change is based in racial and transformative justice to create a liberatory model of community health care for all. Our goal is to establish a central space to share health skills, provide basic integrative care, and explore ways to build networks of communal health.
We are located on the 2nd floor of the Sanctuary’s NATURE Lab building, at 3319 6th Ave, and recognize that we are embedded within the ancestral homelands of the Mohican people.
With the coming decades of radical change upon us, we propose fewer answers and more questions for how to reimagine a way of being. To do this, we begin by finding each other and, as the Zapatista maxim states, “Preguntando caminamos,” or, “walking while asking.”
