How You Can Help
Help fund HRTC’s work in the most marginalized communities.
HRTC is a clinic without walls. We meet people where they are, literally – in the streets, parks, drop-in centers, and shelters – and emotionally, coping with the incredible stress of living on the streets with nothing but what they can carry on their backs.
Harm reduction therapy is truly the most welcoming of all substance use and mental health treatment programs. It understands that people use drugs for reasons and that many are reluctant to give up what has helped them cope. HRTC works with people who fall between the cracks of traditional clinics and programs, and we work with them in places other therapists won’t go.
By supporting our work with the most marginalized people you will be supporting a program that is considered a model around the nation for low threshold mental health and drug treatment.
Your contribution will help us pay for all the needed supplies for creating a comfortable environment for work in the streets – portable chairs, a shade from the rain and sun, snacks, water, warm drinks, harm reduction supplies like overdose reversal medication, tablet computers so we can access information, collect data, and maintain client records on the spot and, most importantly, therapists’ time to sit with people where they live and hang out.
