We are a group of advocates actively supporting the presence of harm reduction within both our surrounding communties and the clinical setting.

Weekly Community Outreach Opportunities

Wednesday Outreach

                                     Friday Outreach


Check Us Out at Some Upcoming Community Events

We’ve created health promotional materials that have been disseminated during our weekly outreach. These materials help increase knowledge on harm reduction practices and provide essential resources throughout our city to help support our patient population. This is an essential tool to help mitigate stigma for our patients while encouraging thoughtful dialogue.
