Since 1993, HIPS has promoted the health, rights and dignities of people on the streets of Washington, DC.
I first learned of HIPS in 2000 while watching a friend assemble baggies of condoms, lube, and candy in her freshman dorm room. Shortly thereafter, I began volunteering, and even interned with HIPS during college. I credit HIPS for showing me my professional path to public health as it taught me more about the field than any schooling I've received. Seventeen years on, HIPS continues to blow my mind: evolving, growing, and always putting their clients first. I am so excited to be contributing to this incredible organization as a new board member. Please join me in supporting HIPS too!Donate
