Help me support HIPS

I've made a commitment to support HIPS, and I need your help. Why?

Because HIPS supports sex workers and IV drug users and does so using HARM REDUCTION strategies that actually work.  If that's enough, click here to give, if not... read on!

Because HIPS makes a difference every day and every night. You probably know HIPS providers safer sex materials, syringes, testing, support groups and all kinds of support through our office and the famous HIPS Outreach Van. Did you know that HIPS also connects folks to HIV and HCV treatment and has helped cure folks of Hep C?  If that's enough, click here to give, if not... read on!

Because HIPS is opening a new Center for Health and Achievement. In our new location, we're planning to open an on-site medical clinic and pharmacy - the only dedicated sex worker- and drug user-friendly clinic in the DC area.  If that's enough, click here to give, if not... read on!

Because HIPS is stepping up to change policy. HIPS has long advocated for policies that support health, empowerment, and safety. In 2015, HIPS will take this work to the next level on issues ranging from the District budget, homelessness and Medicaid to policing, civil rights, and the criminalization of sex workers and drug users.  If that's enough, click here to give, if not... read on!

Basically, HIPS is one of the most awesome organizations ever.  So why not make a donation today?

But all of this costs a lot of money. Moving, creating a clinic space, paying for benefits for our new fellow, and all our other ambitious plans means we need your support more than ever. 

Moving and creating a clinic space will cost us upwards of $200,000 - I'm committing to raise just $5,000 of that. The first $1,200 is from me. That's how much I believe in HIPS. And if I can do that, I know you can do something.  Event $5 will make a difference, but to put it all in perspective: 

$25 HIPS Helping Hand! Candy and hot chocolate/lemonade for a night of outreach
$75 HIPS Friend! Provides our “Community Lunch” for one afternoon
$150 HIPS Advocate! Safer sex supplies for one night of outreach
$200 HIPS Ally! One night’s shelter and safety counseling for a victim of violence
$600 HIPS Leader! Hotline services for six weeks

Please help me help HIPS!

    BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE IN THIS WORLD

    Sangeeta Iyer

    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.

    Since 1993, HIPS has promoted the health, rights and dignities of people on the streets of Washington, DC.  
    We believe that those engaged in sex work, sex trade, and drug use should be able to live healthy, self-determined, and self-sufficient lives free from stigma, violence, criminalization or oppression. We achieve this through engaging sex workers, drug users and our communities in challenging structural barriers to health, safety, and prosperity. HIPS is the most comprehensive organization serving homeless LGBTQ individuals in Washington DC. 

    I joined the board a couple of years ago after volunteering for a few before that.  It is one of the ways that I spend my time of which I am most proud.  I hope you will join me in supporting HIPS.
