Harlem United provides help or advice for people in the community with HIV/AIDS Since 1988 it has provided health and housing related services.

This center started when three young men went to a Lutheran priest for help with a drug addiction. The priest offered a place for them to gather, at a room on the third floor of the church. There, they began to realize that the idea of coming together and supporting one another was helping them fight their addiction. The three young men told the priest that they would like to give the support group a name. They then called it the Upper Room AIDS Ministry, established 1988.

Harlem United was first created by Jules Johnson, Ralph Horton and a group of pastors, social workers, therapists, theologians, health providers, gay men and lesbian women with the concern of the spread of HIV/AIDS. It was first called Upper Room AIDS Ministry in reference to a room in its first home in a Harlem church. After a few years, it grew as more and more people began to show up for the meetings. Later it became known as the Harlem United Community AIDS Center.
