Our Mission


Established in 1947, the Health and Welfare Council of Long Island (HWCLI) is a regional, nonprofit umbrella organization for health and human service providers. We are dedicated to improving the lives of Long Island’s most vulnerable residents by responding to their needs through the promotion and development of public policies and direct services.

HWCLI serves the interests of poor and vulnerable people on Long Island by convening, representing, and supporting the organizations that serve them; and through:

  • Illuminating the issues that critically impact them
  • Organizing community and regional responses to their needs
  • Advocacy, research, and policy analysis
  • Providing services, information and education.
supporting your neighbors
Providing support to HWCLI means supporting your neighbors in need.

The Health & Welfare Council of Long Island is a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)(3) organization. Individual contributions are tax-deductible as charitable contributions to the extent allowed by law.
