Across the country, COVID-19 has disrupted networks for care and systems for survival.
Here at home, Washington DC has announced funding cuts for services to homeless residents, just as the one-two punch of the oncoming winter and a new surge in COVID cases threatens them further.
HIPS received a 15% cut to our needle exchange and overdose prevention programs for 2021
– in the middle of a pandemic and spike in overdoses.
Your donation today will be put into action immediately, providing meals, non-judgmental harm reduction services, community engagement, and advocacy for folks in street economies at a time it's needed most.
We envision a world where all people engaged in sexual exchange and drug usecan use their power to live healthy and self-determined lives free from stigma, violence, criminalization or oppression.
