Queens Walk-in-Day: Every Monday, 10:00am to 3:00pm

Walk-in days are on a first come, first served basis.  We will try to see everyone as soon as possible, but timing depends on the numbers of people who come in that day.

If you are already working with a CIDNY counselor, we encourage you to make an appointment with your counselor, since you are not guaranteed being able to see a specific counselor during walk-in hours.

For more information contact the intake line – Manhattan: 646-442-4186; Queens: 646-442-1520.
