Logistics/Location

 
 

HAPPY service locations:

Currently, HAPPY volunteers conduct blood pressure screenings at three New Haven community centers. Please click on each of the following links for direction and settings at each location.

Usually two to three volunteers are accommodated per shift. At least one of the volunteers should greet and ask community members to take a blood pressure reading. HAPPY volunteers should set up the information poster at a salient location to let the community center clients know of the free, weekly hypertension screening.

All HAPPY volunteers should be courteous to community center staff and be willing to help, such as serving food, cleaning up, and other duties you may be asked to do.

DESK Location: At 311 Temple Street, go to the bottom of the fire escape on the right side of the building. There are stairs leading down. Take the door all the way at the bottom of the stairs (not the one halfway down the stairs). This door will take you into the kitchen. Exit out of the kitchen through the door on your right, and continue down the hallway until you see the communal eating area through double doors on the left. We set up in the corner by the closet directly across from where food is served.
