The Queens Village Committee for Mental Health for J-CAP, Inc., also known as J-CAP (Just Caring About People), was established in 1968 as a store-front outreach center for addiction information and prevention, and later evolved to include additional programs to meet the broad needs of the local community, including Residential Addiction Treatment, HIV/AIDS Treatment and Counseling, Primary Care, Career Counseling Services, and Services for Veterans, among other resources. J-CAP became an affiliate of Acacia Network in 2020.
The Queens Village Committee for Mental Health for J-CAP presently serves the community through integrated primary care, behavioral health, and addiction services at its health center, located at 116-30 Sutphin Blvd. in Queens.
