Be the Change You Wish To See in this World

In 2014, I learned about HIPS through a colleague and took the plunge to join its board. I wanted to be part of this trailblazing network which has helped to define locally and globally best practices in harm reduction for almost 25 years!

In my three years, I am proud of what the group has done from expanding physically into a beautiful, inviting space for our clients on H street to programmatically. In the last year, our medical alliances have deepened such we can provide health care in the center as well as advise on housing resources.

I look forward to seeing what shape HIPS takes in this brave new world but know that it will always put our clients first. I invite you to come see what HIPS has to offer and join us whether it be as a volunteer or donor.
