Our non-profit is founded in harm reduction philosophy. We do not judge those who participate in our programs, nor do we condemn their behavior. Instead, we work with our participants on their own terms, striving to find practical solutions that are individually appropriate, non-coercive, and effective in protecting their health. We operate within a framework of voluntary association, participatory decision making, and direct action based on respect and dignity for all of our participants and volunteers.
