Our story

Cityblock was founded on the premise that health is local. In October 2017, we launched Cityblock with the support of Sidewalk Labs, an Alphabet Company. Since then, we’ve planted roots in Brooklyn, grown our team, built our technology platform, and are caring for thousands in underserved communities. Today, we partner with health plans to reach people in neighborhoods that face high poverty rates and accompanying social challenges.
